A loan of $600 helped to buy a dairy cow.

Luisa's story

Luisa is a milk producer. She sells the milk to milk collection companies in the city of La Paz. She was widowed one year ago. She lives in her own house, and she has a daughter who works in the city of La Paz.

She currently lives alone in the Humapusa community in the Achacachi municipality, which is a two and a half hour trip from the city of La Paz. She says that she has a few head of cattle, which give her milk for her consumption and for her to sell.

The requested loan will increase her savings in order to buy a dairy cow. This way she will increase her production and her income.

Luisa’s dream is to increase her head of cattle, increasing the milk production in her community.

This is the first time she has requested a loan from IMPRO and the first time with Kiva.
