A loan of $1,175 helped to buy a dairy cow to increase his volume of milk production in order to improve his income.


Tomas's story

Tomas and his wife produce milk which they sell to one of the collection companies from the city of La Paz. He lives in his own house in the community of Irama Belén in the municipality of Achacachi, two and a half hours' journey from the city of la Paz. They have two children who are school age. Tomas has a few heads of cattle which provide him with milk. He needs the loan to buy a dairy cow so he can increase his milk production and his income for the family. Tomas's dream is to increase his number of animals, increasing the milk production in his community. This is the first time he has asked for a loan with IMPRO and the first time with Kiva.
