A loan of $1,025 helped to buy improved seeds.

Juan's story

Juan is married and has 3 children; all of whom are independent. He lives in his own 3-bedroom house which has earthen floors, in the Palomar neighbourhood in La Paz. He currently works in agriculture and raising livestock, working more than 10 hours a day, since it is the only source of income he has to cover food and basic services for his family.

Juan needs a loan to buy better seed, since it will help to reduce the production time, and result in better quality produce. Also, it does not require much watering, which will help him save water and improve the natural environment. In the remaining time, Juan also raises calves.

Juan's dream is to increase his production and also his livestock so he can increase his income and his quality of life. He wants to save for his old age and he wants to increase his earnings for the future as it is his only source of income.

This is the second time Juan has taken a loan with IMPRO and the first with Kiva.
