View original language description ↓
Gregoria sells cow's milk to PIL Andina, S.A., a company that distributes dairy products. The company pays her every two weeks for this service. Gregoria also has a grocery store. Both activities are her principal sources of income. With them, she covers the costs of raising her three children.

Gregoria lives in the Chijipina Chico community, in the Omasuyo province, in the department of La Paz (three hours from the city of El Alto).

This credit will be used to purchase a dairy cow of medium quality because Gregoria hopes to increase her production of milk.

This is her second credit with Impro, and she receives it without difficulty because of her good payment record.

Additional Information


IMPRO is a small non-profit organization that has been offering micro credit to the working poor in the Bolivian cities of La Paz and El Alto since 1995. IMPRO’s goal is to fight poverty by offering loans to small business owners who cannot access credit through the regular banking system due to a lack of guarantees or collateral.

To ensure that everyone has access to credit, IMPRO maintains a low interest rate by minimizing operational costs. IMPRO’s partnership with Kiva, which began in 2007, has allowed IMPRO to expand its services while maintaining these low interest rates.
