A loan of $1,025 helped to buy improved vegetable seed so that her production is higher and cleaner.


Alicia's story

Alicia is married and has four children, two of whom are independent and two live with her. They live in their own three-room house in Palomar in the city of La Paz. Every day she farms and raises cattle to support her family. Her husband works in the city, and her income has to pay for the family's food, education, and basic services.

She needs a loan to buy improved vegetable seed, which will be a great help because it requires little irrigation, grows fast and cleanly, and also conserves the soil. Alicia dreams of increasing production and income, which will improve her standard of living. This is her first loan cycle with IMPRO and Kiva.
