A loan of $500 helped buying a milking cow.


Alberto's story

Alberto makes artisan crafts and works with straw manufacturing baskets, hats, place mats, etc. He also sells cow milk, from which he supplements his earnings in order to support his wife and three children. He lives in Comunidad de Batallas – Caluyo (two hours away from La Paz). He will use the loan for buying a milking cow of medium breed in order to increase milk production. This is his second credit through Impro and his good payment records qualify him for obtaining another loan.
