Jhonny currently works more than eight hours a day and into the late hours of the evening as a taxi driver. Through his work, he is able to pay for expenses such as food and basic services. The loan he is requesting will be used for general vehicle maintenance and an engine tune-up since his vehicle is his only source of income and in need of a few repairs.

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.
