Sabina breeds cattle and later on sells the milk to a company called PIL Andina.

She lives in the community of Chahuira Chico, in the sector of Achacachi, in the province of Omasuyos (3 hours and a half away from La Paz).

She lives together with her husband, who is a teacher and their three children (ages 12, 18 and 20).

This is the first loan Isabel requests to Impro; she will use it to buy more cattle. The loan evaluation that was realized, qualifies her to receive the loan.

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.
