Justina currently gets income from making bread. She works over ten hours a day, and she has an oven in her house. She is married and has three school age children. They live in their own house, occupying two small adobe rooms with dirt floors. The house is located in the San Roque area of the city of El Alto.

This is why she is requesting the loan to buy straw and to pay the bricklayer to build a pair of rooms. Even though they are very rustic, they will make her family more comfortable. This will improve their quality of life.

Justina’s dream is to have a vehicle in order to deliver the bread she makes and improve her income. She wants to do this in order to pay for her children’s education.

This is the first time she has worked with IMPRO and 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.
