Natividad is married and has two children. She lives in the San Pedro area of the city of La Paz. She has a taxi cab which she uses to make a daily living and support her family.

Natividad is requesting a loan to purchase a radio communication system, since her cab belongs to a group of radio taxis and she can't work under normal conditions without a radio.

Natividad's dream is to own her own house, since she currently has an antichresis lease. (Antichresis is a legal agreement between the property owner and the potential tenant, whereby the tenant lives in the home or room(s) for up to two years in exange for a lump sum which is returned at the end of the lease). This way she doesn't have to pay monthly.

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.
