Jesús Q. Q. Lives in his own home in the Pasankeri neighborhood on the west side of the city of La Paz. He is a widower and lives with his two children.

Jesus sells llamas, which he buys in the highlands of western Bolivia. He then shepherds the herd of llamas to a town two days away, where he sells them. This loan will be used to buy more llamas, since Jesus doesn't have enough investment money to earn enough to live on.

This is the third time Jesus has requested a loan from IMPRO. He has received a good credit score following a socioeconomic analysis, so he qualifies to receive this credit.

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.
