Severo lives in his own house located in the community of Achica Baja, in the municipality of Viacha in Ingavi province in the department of La Paz, an approximately two hours journey from the city of La Paz.
Severo needs the loan to purchase a pair of improved breed milk cows so that he can use their milk to produce ecological cheese.
Severo’s dream is to expand and in the medium term to have his own ecological farm which will be self-sustaining principally through Biodigesters and Biogas. To do this, he requires livestock that will provide at least 12 kilos of manure daily, which, mixed with 60 liters of water will provide methane for four hours a day, thus avoiding the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) in order to care for the environment. This is the third time he has applied for credit from IMPRO and the first time from 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.
