A loan of $400 helped to purchase llamas to raise and for eventual resale.


Jesus's story

Sr. Jesús sells llama heads and is also a master practitioner of folk medicine. He says that he can cure people through the use of medicinal herbs. The loan he is requesting will be used to buy more llamas so that he can eventually sell the meat and the heads at the markets where dishes using these ingredients are prepared. Llama meat is known for being more appealing and healthier than beef. Jesús lives in his own home in the District of Pasankeri in the city of La Paz. He is a widower and has five children.

Jesús has been a client of IMPRO since 2008. This is the second time that his loan request has been referred to Kiva for funding.
