View original language description ↓
Beatriz is a widow who lives in her own home with her children on Tupac Katari Street in the Pasankeri area of the city of La Paz. In the mornings, she works selling clothes which provides her with a very small amount of money. Her other source of income comes from the rental of a taxi. The loan that she is requesting will be used to repair her taxi so that she can continue generating enough income. This is especially important since she is alone and the only one supporting her children.

She has a good prior history and qualifies to obtain a new loan.

Translated from Spanish by Kim Baker, Kiva volunteer.

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.
