Juan works as an attorney’s assistant in legal proceedings, in court, in city hall and all legal related matters. He resides in the Villa Copacabana neighborhood of La Paz. He is married and his wife is employed. He has two daughters that are of school age. This is the second time that Juan requests a loan in Impro and the second time that he asks for Kiva’s help. The loan will be used to purchase school supplies for his two daughters and for their monthly tuition. His hard work and his desire to get ahead allow him to assume this loan.

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.
