A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase a milk cow to increase the production of cheeses.

Sonia's story

Sonia is a small time farmer and producer of cow milk, which she uses to make cheeses to sell at the local markets of Viacha. She also works as an artisan making blankets for little girls. Her husband is a baker and together they are able to cover the family expenses and support their four children. The family lives with Sonia's parents in la Provincia Ingavi - Achica Baja, which is approximately two and a half hours from the city of El Alto.

The loan will be used to purchase a milk cow of average quality, which she will use to increase her production of cheeses.

This is her fourth loan with Impro. Her good standing and prompt loan payments have qualified her for the loan she is requesting.
