Bacilia
Bacilia along with a group of people from the same community decided to farm and raise animals; she raises dairy cattle to produce milk which she sells to one of the industrial milk plants in La Paz department. The first step she made was to not tether the cows nor keep them enclosed far from pasture where they like pasture now that each has a blankets to cover them from the cold, nor does she cut the horns so the calves have their naturally shaped horns, and they receive fresh and high quality food, thus keeping the cows in good health.

She lives in her own home located in the San Juan De Circa community in the Aroma province of La Paz department, two hours from La Paz city; she has various heads of cattle that required great care given the weather conditions of the area.

Bacilia's dream is to increase her heads of cattle and protect their good health. The loan she seeks now is to buy a milk cow to increase her milk production and improve her income and quality of life.

This is the first time she seeks a loan from IMPRO and the first time with KIVA.

Bacilia 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 ya que cada una tiene ropa para cubrirse del frio, 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 propia, ubicada en la comunidad de San Juan de Circa, de La provincia Aroma del Departamento de La Paz a dos horas 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 sueño de Bacilia es incrementar sus cabezas de ganado, precautelando la buena salud de ellos. Asi, el crédito que solicita ahora es para la compra una vaca lechera para incrementar su producción de leche y mejorar 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.
