Valentina dedicates herself full-time to her agricultural activities, as this is the only source of income she has with which she can cover her living expenses. Neither of her children support her financially, even though she could use the help.
The loan that she is asking for will be invested in purchasing modified seeds, which do not require as much water and require shorter growing time. With these seeds she will be able to grow her products more efficiently while also protecting the environment.
Valentina's dream is to one day also raise livestock, so that she can improve her income and her quality of life.
This is the first loan that she is asking for from IMPRO, and also her first time working with KIVA.
Actualmente se dedica a la agricultura por completo ya que es la única que cubre sus ingresos de alimentación y pago de servicios básicos ya que ninguno de sus hijos le ayuda económicamente siendo ella de la tercera edad.
El crédito lo invertirá en la compra de semilla mejorada ya que le sera de mucha ayuda por que no necesita de mucho riego y su producción es en menos tiempo y además de mejor calidad respetando el medio ambiente.
El sueño de Valentina es comprar ganado para dedicarse al engorde y de esta manera mejorar sus ingresos y su calidad de vida.
Es la primera vez que solicita crédito junto a IMPRO y también 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.

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.
