More information about this loan

This loan is for Bolivian entrepreneurs who follow cleaner production principles in their work, including waste reduction and environmental protection. By supporting this loan, you are promoting economic activities that are environmentally friendly but that also maximize productivity to help borrowers boost their incomes.


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.
