Lina is single and still lives in her parents' house located in the Ciudad Satélite zone of El Alto. She completed mid-level technical training and graduated as an executive secretary. She presently works for the city of La Paz in archives.

The loan is so she can move into a room under an anticrético rental arrangement, since her parents will be making modifications on their home and Lina will have to live elsewhere.

Lina's dream is to have her own house. This is the first time she has requested a loan with IMPRO and her first time with 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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
