A loan of $800 helped purchase of a dairy cow to increase milk production.

Francisco's story

Francisco is a small farmer and cow milk producer who sells his goods to Pil Andina, a company that stock-piles food to then create by-products such as yogurt, milk candy, cheese, and others. This is his main form of income that covers the maintenance of his four children who study at the public school in town. He has his own house located in the province of Los Andes Huayrocondo - Batallas (two hours from the city of El Alto). The loan will be used to purchase a medium quality dairy cow that will help him with greater milk production and his sales to Pil Andina will increase his income. This is the third loan con Kiva partner Impro, and the good repayment terms allow him to be approved for this loan.
