A loan of $1,500 helped to buy construction materials to renovate the barn where he keeps his cattle, so that they will stay warm this winter.

Edwin's story

Edwin has a dairy farm; he sells the milk he produces to another business. He lives in his own home with his family in the community of Cota Cota, in the municipality of Pucarani (two hours away from the city of La Paz). He has various purebred heads of cattle, which need better care given the harsh weather conditions.

He has requested a loan to buy construction materials like, cement, bricks, etc. This will allow him to renovate the barn where his cattle are kept, which will in turn help to improve production because his cows will be in better health.

Edwin's dream is to increase the number of cattle he has. This is the second loan that he has taken out through IMPRO, and the first time he has received a loan through KIVA.
