A loan of $1,450 helped to purchase a dairy cow in order to increase his production of milk and cheese.

Alfredo's story

Alfredo and his wife make cheese, which they sell in different markets throughout the municipality of Achacachi, and he also works as a professor in a rural area.

He has three school-age children, and he lives in his own home in the village of Warisata, which lies within the Achacachi municipal district, about one and a half hours’ journey from the city of La Paz.

He has a few head of cattle which provide him with the milk that he uses for his cheese making. He needs a loan for the purchase of a dairy cow, and forage for feeding, so that he can increase his production and his income.

Alfredo’s dream is to expand the size of his herd and increase the production of milk and cheese in his community.

This is his first loan with IMPRO and Kiva.
