German's story

German lives in Achacachi. He is a mason by trade, and his wife is an agricultural producer, who mostly grows onions. This is his main source of support for his family, which includes his four children. The loan will be used to buy a dairy cow, which will allow him to sell more milk to the PIL factory and improve his income. German also has the goal of joining Aplepo (the Milk Producers Association of Omasuyos Province). This is his first loan with Impro.
