Victor lives in the borough of Tembladerani in La Paz, the capital city of Bolivia. He supports his family with his salary as a driver. He lives in his father-in-law´s house along with wife and children.

The credit will be used to turn a storage room into a bedroom for his children. Right now the kids share one room, but have grown and need more space.

This is Victor´s first time with IMPRO, and according to his credit score he qualifies to receive this loan.

Translated from Spanish by Nathan, Kiva Volunteer.

Victor vive en la calle Mario Alborta de la zona de Tembladerani de la ciudad de La Paz; trabaja como chofer asalariado con lo cual mantiene a su familia; vive en la casa de su suegro con su esposa y sus hijos.
El crédito que solicita es para transformar la habitación de depósito en dormitorio para sus hijos ya que actualmente ellos viven en una sola habitación y los niños ya crecieron y necesitan mayor comodidad,

No tiene antecedente con Impro pero según la evaluación socio-económica efectuada Victor califica para obtener un préstamo.

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.
