Mario is a dentistry student who is in his training period and as such, has decided to open a small dental surgery where he can carry out dental procedures, treatments and extractions. He plans to do this for his neighbors in the Llojeta-tiwiña area and his family members who know him well as he doesn't count on having the full equipment for his activities.

He is asking for the loan to purchase a dentist's chair; this will be a great help as it will improve the conditions he offers his clients, enabling him to cope with more clients and improve his revenue.

This is the second time he requests a loan from Impro and the second time he asks for Kiva's help. His loan history qualifies him as a responsible customer who pays his installments.

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.
