Roberto's story

Roberto makes a living by making cheese. He lives with his two children, who are school-aged and attend school in their community. They sell the cheese that they make directly to the public on market days in Achacachi, which is a medium-sized city.

He currently lives in his own home in the community of Churuhuata Belen, in the municipality of Achacachi, which is about two and a half hours from the city of La Paz. He has some heads of cattle that provide milk, which he uses to make cheese.

He requests the loan to purchase a dairy cow to increase milk production so that he can make more cheese.

Roberto's dream is to have more heads of cattle. This is his first loan with IMPRO and KIVA. The photograph above includes Roberto and his daughter.
