She requests the loan in order to purchase improved seeds. That way she'll improve her production and help preserve the environment, since by using these seeds she'll no longer need too much water for irrigation and she'll optimize the use of such an important resource. In addition, she'll get a high quality produce, which will yield higher profits for investing in her land.
Cecilia's dream is to increase her agricultural production without harming the environment, and to own a tree nursery.
This is the 7th time she requests a loan with IMPRO and the first time with Kiva.
El crédito lo requiere para compra de semilla mejorada: de esta manera mejorara su producción y ayudara a la preservación del medio ambiente ya que al utilizar estas semillas ya no necesitara demasiado riego de agua y así optimizara este recurso tan importante, además tendrá un producto que será de calidad del cual percibirá mayores ingresos para invertir en sus terrenos.
El sueño de Cecilia, es incrementar su producción agrícola sin dañar el medio ambiente, y tener un vivero forestal.
Es la séptima vez que solicita crédito junto a IMPRO y la primera vez con KIVA.

About IMPROIMPRO 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.
