Sra. Nelly makes shoes for all ages and her husband is a high school teacher. Both of their jobs provide income by which they can support their family. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy raw materials such as leather, insoles, soles, adhesive, and other supplies. Nelly was awarded a large contract in which she must make 36 pairs of tennis shoes, 48 pairs of women’s shoes, and 36 pairs of men’s shoes. She is married and has two children. Nelly lives in her own home in the District of Tembladerani in the city of La Paz.

Just like her previous loan, this request is being referred to Kiva for funding. Nelly is very pleased.

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.
