Iblin is single and doesn't have children. She lives in a small rented room with earch walls and a cement floor. The house is located in the Bella Vista area of the city of La Paz.
Currently, she works for more than 8 hours a day helping to prepare food in a restaurant as, with the little income that she has, she must cover the cost of food, rent, and utilities.
She needs the loan to buy meat, rice, noodles, etc as she wants to sell food independently at night and, in this way, improve her income.
Iblin's dream is to have her own restaurant as she likes making food.
This is the first time that she has requested a loan from IMPRO and KIVA together.

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.
