Estefa's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped Purchase a dairy cow to increase her cheese production.
Estefa is now elderly but she is still working as a small agricultural and dairy farmer. She uses the cows' milk to make cheeses, which she sells at the Viacha market. This is her primary source of income, and she uses it to support her daughter and granddaughter. They live in a house they own in Provincia Ingavi – Achica Baja, two and a half hours from the city of El Alto. She will use the loan to buy a dairy cow to get more milk and increase her cheese production. This is her fourth loan with Impro, and her history of faithful payment has ensured its approval.
