View original language description ↓
Mr. Sabino has a vehicle and he is affiliated with the Trufi #5 syndicate, where he works from Monday through Sunday. His wife is a vendor, and they have two school-age children. To clarify, a "trufi" is like a taxi, but with a fixed route.

His home is located in the Alto Tacagua neighborhood of the city of La Paz. This is the third time he has requested a loan. The requested amount will be destined for the maintenance and repair of the motor of his vehicle.

His work and credit record allow approval of this loan, since he has experience as a transporter and the routes he works have a lot of passenger demand, which will give him the income to cover the loan.

(Translated from the Spanish by Naomi Johnson, Kiva volunteer)

Additional Information


IMPRO is a small non-profit organization that has been offering micro credit to the working poor in the Bolivian cities of La Paz and El Alto since 1995. IMPRO’s goal is to fight poverty by offering loans to small business owners who cannot access credit through the regular banking system due to a lack of guarantees or collateral.

To ensure that everyone has access to credit, IMPRO maintains a low interest rate by minimizing operational costs. IMPRO’s partnership with Kiva, which began in 2007, has allowed IMPRO to expand its services while maintaining these low interest rates.
