Cathie finished secondary school and now earns a living by making jackets at his home in the city of El Alto. The loan he is requesting will be used to buy raw materials (leather, zippers, and linings) so that he can increase and improve his production. This will allow him to improve his quality of life. His dream is to own a textile business.
This is the first loan he has requested from IMPRO and Kiva.

El sueño de Cathie es tener una empresa textil.

About IMPROIMPRO 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.
