A loan of $725 helped to buy a calf.

Martha's story

Martha is a dairy farmer; she delivers her milk to a gathering firm that processes it for subsequent sale to the public. She lives alone because her mother with whom she used to live went to live with one of her sisters in the city of La Paz due to health reasons.

Her community is called Liquiñoso and is located in the municipality of Pucarani three hours from the city of La Paz. She owns a few head of cattle that produce milk that she delivers daily to the collector.

She needs the loan to buy a heifer that will grow into a dairy cow. Martha’s dream is to increase her herd size and as a result her production which will mean improved quality of life. This is her second IMPRO and first KIVA loan request.
