Anastacia
Anastacia and a group of people from her community decided to take care of the land and the animals. She makes a living raising cows to produce milk, which she sells to one of the industrial milk plants in the department of La Paz. Her first step was to let the cows go free and not keep them enclosed far from the pastures where they like to graze. Nor does she cut their horns, so they'll have their calves naturally, the nutrition they provide will be fresh and high quality, and they'll be healthy.

Anastacia lives in her parents' house in the community of Pallina Chico in the Viacha area of the province of Ingavi in the department of La Paz, an hour from the city of La Paz. She has several heads of Creole cattle that require better care, given the weather conditions in the area. She'll use the loan to buy a good breed of dairy cow to get a better quality of milk.

Anastacia's dream is to have more cattle and ensure their good health. This way she can improve her income and quality of life.

This is the first time she has requested a loan from IMPRO and from Kiva.

Anastacia junto a un grupo de personas de la misma comunidad decidieron cuidar la tierra y los animales; ella se dedica a la cria de ganado vacuno para la producción de leche la cual vende a una de las Plantas Industrializadoras de Leche del departamento de La Paz. El primer paso que dió fue no atar a las vacas, ni mantenerlas encerradas lejos de los pastisales en los que les gusta pastar, tampoco cortarles los cuernos, para que, éstas den terneras de forma natural y el alimento que proporcionen sea fresco y de gran calidad, conservando la buena salud de sus vacas.

Ella vive en casa de sus padres, ubicada en la comunidad de Pallina Chico, del Sector Viacha de La provincia Ingavi del Departamento de La Paz a una hora de distancia de la ciudad de La Paz cuenta con varias cabezas de ganado criollas las cuales requieren mejor cuidado dada las condiciones climatológicas del sector. El crédito será utilizado en la compra de una vaca lechera de raza mejorada para obtener leche de mejor calidad.

El sueño de Anastacia es incrementar sus cabezas de ganado, precautelando la buena salud de ellos.Asi mejoar sus ingresos y calidad de vida.

Es la primera vez que solicita crédito junto a IMPRO y la primera vez con KIVA.

About IMPRO

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.
