Julio's story

Julio is divorced and has a daughter in school age. He works taking care of a farm, where he lives in a room. The house is located in the village of Palomar, La Paz department.

He takes care of the farm during the daytime and during the weekends, he grows flowers. He is requesting a loan to buy improved chard and corn seeds. These plants are easy to take care of, and require little water and less time to grow. By saving water it is possible to help taking care of the environment.

Julio’s dream is to acquire a larger piece of agricultural land and increase his income so that he can support his daughter with her studies. At the moment, he has to cover his family’s food, education and utilities expenses with a small income.

This is the fourth time he requests a loan to IMPRO and the second time working with Kiva.
