Viviana is a single mother; she has a son she lives with in her own house. The house is small and only has two bedrooms. It’s located in the city of La Paz’s Mallasilla zone.

Currently, she earns income as an employee in a private firm; she works more than 8 hours and is able to cover all expenses related to food and schooling for her son.

She is asking for the loan to build a garage at home because she’s thinking about buying a vehicle to save on transportation costs because of the distance she lives at.

Viviana’s dream is to buy a vehicle because the house she lives in is far from downtown and she needs to give her son security because there aren’t many buses going toward her house especially when it’s very late.

This is her second loan request to IMPRO and first to KIVA.

Viviana, es madre soltera y tiene un hijo con el cual vive en su propia casa; la casa es pequeña y solo tiene dos dormitorios esta ubicada en la zona Mallasilla de la ciudad de La Paz.
Actualmente percibe ingresos ya que trabaja como empleada en una institución privada por más de ocho horas con lo cual solventa todos los gastos ya sean alimenticios y estudios para su hijo.
El crédito lo solicita para la construcción de un garaje en su casa ya que piensa comprar un vehiculo para ahorrar en pasajes por la distancia donde vive.
El sueño de Viviana es comprarse un vehiculo ya que la casa donde vive esta alejada del centro de la ciudad y necesita darle seguridad a su hijo ya que no hay muchos buses hacia su casa mas que todo cuando es muy tarde.
Es la segunda vez que solicita el crédito con IMPRO y la primera vez con KIVA.

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.
