Petrona's story

Petrona raises dairy cattle. The milk produced by her animals is sold to PIL Andina (an industrial milk plant). She lives in the community of Ninachiri, Kallutaca Sector, Los Andes Province, Department of La Paz. Her residence is located four hours away from the city of La Paz.

As a second job, Petrona sells food in the city of El Alto. Her husband is in charge of the work in their fields. They have six children, of whom four are independent. The rest are of school age.

This loan will be used to buy cattle of good breed so that she can increase her milk production, as well as her income. This is her third loan with IMPRO and the second one posted on Kiva. Her evaluation indicated that she is qualified to receive this loan.
