Eduardo is a milk producer and works as a public transportation driver in the city of La Paz. This is how he supplements his income in order to support his wife and four children. He lives in Comunidad Palomar Rio – Palomar (2 hours south of the city of La Paz). He will use the loan for buying a milking cow of medium breed in order to increase milk production and supply the demand in the area. This is his first credit through Impro and his socioeconomic evaluation qualifies him for granting a loan.

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.
