A loan of $1,450 helped to purchase cement, bricks, and corrugated iron to repair her stable.


Emma's story

Emma works raising cows to produce milk that she sells at one of the industrialized milk plants in La Paz. She lives in her own house with her children. Her husband works as a slaughterhouse in La Paz as a employee paid by piecework. For each cow slaughtered, he receives payment. They live in the community of Akerana in the Achacachi area of the province of Omasuyos in the department of La Paz, about three hours from the city. They have cows that require better care due to the weather conditions in their area.

She is requesting this loan to purchase construction materials such as cement, bricks, and corrugated iron so that she can repair the stable for the cows since that will improve production. It will preserve the health of the cows so that the milk they produce will be cleaner and of better quality.

Emma and her family dream of increasing the number of cows they own, taking care of their good health, and improving their financial situation. This is the second loan she has requested with IMPRO and Kiva.
