A loan of $400 helped to purchase three llamas to raise and for eventual resale.

Jesus's story

Jesús is a widower and has five children, all of whom are now independent. He lives in his own house, occupying three rooms with brick walls and earth floor. The house is located in the Pasankeri area of the city of La Paz.

Currently, he sells llamas in various markets, and also earns income reading fortunes using coca leaves, and as a healer with natural plants. This is because he must cover his expenses for food and payment of basic services.

He needs the loan to buy more livestock (he will buy three llamas), in order to put them up for sale after fattening them, as he wishes to improve his income and quality of life.

Jesús' dream is to finish building his house, so that he can take in his children.

This is the sixth time that he has worked with IMPRO, and the second time with Kiva.
