Eloy lives in his parent's house. He works as a graphic designer for a printer. His house is located in the Tembladerani neighborhood of the city of La Paz.

Eloy earns only his salary from his job. He works more than 8 hours a day. He will use this loan to do some finishing work on his house, specifically, to put in doors and windows and to fix the floor which is currently made of dirt. This way, he will have a nice environment in his home for Christmas.

Eloy's dream is to have his own printing press, so that in the future he could generate more income and improve his quality of life.

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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
