David’s single and does not have children. He lives in his parents’ house occupying a single, small room. The house is located in the city of La Paz’s Cotahuma zone.

He earns income as an employee in a private firm; he works more than 8 hours daily. He also owns a car that he puts to work as a taxi and it earns him a daily rental fee. He’s able to pay for his food and basic utility costs this way.

The loan he needs is to buy a new motor to replace the one currently in his taxi because it’s a bit old and he needs a motor that’s in better condition which will be of great help to him since this is his additional source of income.

David’s dream is to improve his income in order to be able to become independent because he’d like to have more comfort and improve his quality of life. This is his second loan with IMPRO and first with 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.
