A loan of $2,100 helped to buy two pumps for irrigation and a milking machine.


Francisco's story

Franciso now makes a living raising cows and growing agricultural crops such as peaches, pears, plums, and apples. He sells the crops in the interior of Bolivia such as in the departments of Santa Cruz and Cochabamba. Francisco lives with his wife and parents in the town of Sapahaqui in the province of Loayza in the department of La Paz. Previously he worked in passenger transportation. He needs the loan to buy machinery such as two pumps so he can irrigate his crops. He'll also buy a milking machine to mechanize the milk extraction. This will allow him to have healthy products and maximize the production time for his products. Francisco's dream is to mechanize the agricultural production process of the products he works with. This is the fourth time he has requested a loan from IMPRO and the second time from Kiva.
