A loan of $725 helped to buy a dairy cow.

Tiburcio's story

Tiburcio is a milk producer. He sells the milk to one of the milk harvesting companies. He lives in his own house with his wife and their four school-age children. They live in the Merke Achacachi community in the Achacachi municipality, which is a two and a half hour trip from the city of La Paz. He has four head of livestock, which give him good quality milk. The milk sales are his main source of income.

He needs the loan to buy a dairy cow. This way he will increase his milk production and his income for his family. Tiburcio’s dream is to increase his head of cattle, which will greatly increase his production.

It is the second time he has requested a loan with IMPRO and the first time with Kiva.
