Fidel lives in the district of Pasankeri in the city of La Paz. He works as an electrician, maintaining houses and motel rooms in the city of La Paz. In addition, he is in charge of plumbing and other types of building maintenance.

Fidel is married and has two children. This loan will be used to enter into an “anticrético” agreement (a special type of arrangement in which property is pawned to the tenant in exchange for an upfront rental payment, and the rent is returned to the tenant at end of the rental period). Such a contract will benefit his family since he must provide for their living conditions and guard against an increase in the cost of an “anticrético” in the future.

This is the fourth time Fidel has requested a loan from IMPRO. His credit history indicates he is a Level 1 client, which means he has completed his payments on time.

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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
