Mateo and his wife own seven dairy cows. They are producers of milk, which they sell to PIL (Industrial Milk Plant). This is their main source of income, with which they cover the maintenance of their four children. They live in the Tipampa Achacachi community, Omasuyos Provience, of the city of El Alto.

The loan will be used to buy a dairy cow of medium quality, the same kind that provides for the greater part of their milk production.

This is their third loan with Impro. Their good payment history allows Impro to approve another loan requested by Mateo.

Additional Information


IMPRO is a small non-profit organization that has been offering micro credit to the working poor in the Bolivian cities of La Paz and El Alto since 1995. IMPRO’s goal is to fight poverty by offering loans to small business owners who cannot access credit through the regular banking system due to a lack of guarantees or collateral.

To ensure that everyone has access to credit, IMPRO maintains a low interest rate by minimizing operational costs. IMPRO’s partnership with Kiva, which began in 2007, has allowed IMPRO to expand its services while maintaining these low interest rates.
