View original language description ↓
Andrea lives on Mundo Street in a neighborhood called Villa Exaltacion, which is located on the outskirts of the city of El Alto. She is a single mother and lives with her ten year old daughter. She makes a living by selling spices and peppers at a market located in the central part of the city. She would like to use this loan in order to purchase a larger variety of spices and peppers, therefore increasing her sales and earnings. This is her first loan with Impro, and her evaluation qualifies her for this loan request.

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.
