Miriam rents a place on the Ave of Buenos Aires in the district of Cota in the city of La Paz. Previously, she used to sell peanut products but that did not go well. Then, she decided to sell something different. Now, she sells CDs, which has improved her income. The loan she seeks is to increase the amount of capital, which is to buy more CDs and stabilize her business. Her credit history is very good and qualifies her for a new loan. She has been a client since July 2007.

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.
