Mrs. Isabel lives in her own house with her children on Paraguay Street in the Miraflores zone of the city of La Paz. Her husband is a farm worker and works in the field. She sells API (like coffee, but made from corn) in a stand that she has in the town square. With this activity she provides for her children and can cover their most basic needs.

The credit she is seeking is to buy supplies (ground corn, sugar, cinnamon, etc..) and to buy a table and chairs to provide comfort and hygiene to her customers, and in this way maintain her earnings and try to increase them.

She has been a client of Impro since 2007 and has a good payment history, which means she can agree to a new 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.
