Jhonny
Jhonny works for a company that makes ceramic tiles. He and his wife and some other people from the community decided to care for the land and animals. His wife raises dairy cows which she sells to some industrial milk plants. Her first step was not to tie the cows up, nor keep them locked up, or keep them away from the pastures, not cutting off their horns so that they can have calves naturally and so that the food they produce is of high quality and so they stay healthy.

He lives with his in-laws in the Pallina Chico community in the Viacha sector of the Ongavi province, within the La Paz department. He has several heads of cattle.

Jhonny’s dream is to increase his number of heads of cattle, while keeping them healthy, and have good stables so he can milk the cows. He is asking for a loan to buy a pair of dairy cows to increase his milk production and income.

This will be his first loan through IMPRO and Kiva.

Jhonny trabaja en una compañía donde producen ceramica de ladrillo . Él y su esposa y junto al grupo de personas de la misma comunidad decidieron cuidar la tierra y los animales. La esposa se dedica a la cria de ganado vacuno para la producción de leche la cual vende a una de las Plantas Industrializadoras de Leche 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.

El vive en casa de sus suegros, 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.

El sueño de Jhonny es incrementar sus cabezas de ganado, precautelando la buena salud de ellos, a la vez tener establos atemperados y ordeñadoras. Por esta razón solicita un crédito para la compra de un par de vacas lecheras para incrementar su producción de leche y sus ingresos.

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.
