A loan of $1,175 helped to buy cows.

Jhonny's story

Jhonny works for a company that makes ceramic tiles. He and his wife and some other people from the community decided to care for the land and animals. His wife raises dairy cows which she sells to some industrial milk plants. Her first step was not to tie the cows up, nor keep them locked up, or keep them away from the pastures, not cutting off their horns so that they can have calves naturally and so that the food they produce is of high quality and so they stay healthy.

He lives with his in-laws in the Pallina Chico community in the Viacha sector of the Ongavi province, within the La Paz department. He has several heads of cattle.

Jhonny’s dream is to increase his number of heads of cattle, while keeping them healthy, and have good stables so he can milk the cows. He is asking for a loan to buy a pair of dairy cows to increase his milk production and income.

This will be his first loan through IMPRO and Kiva.
