Gabriel lives in his own home with his wife. His children are on their own. He lives in the area of Llojeta in the city of La Paz. His activity is selling sand.

The loan he is asking for is to buy a plot of land for his children. He has saved up with his wife and recently he was offered a plot at a good price and he doesn't want to miss this opportunity.

Gabriel's dream is that when he stops working, his children can live comfortably and his wife can have a little neighborhood store in their house to support herself in old age.

This is the fourth time that he has asked for a loan from IMPRO and the first time from Kiva.

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.
