A loan of $1,325 helped to purchase a milking cow.

Tiburcio's story

Tiburcio is a dairy farmer, and he sells the milk to the company Delicia. He also works as a master brick layer in the town of Achacachi. Tiburcio currently is separated from his wife and lives in his own home with his two children in his care. His children are school aged. He lives in the community of Chijipina chico, in the city of Achacachi, around two hours travel from the city of La Paz. He only has a few head of cattle that provide milk.

The credit is needed in order to buy a milking cow, and thus increase production and his income.
Tiburcio's dream is to increase his head of cattle, increasing the milk production of his community.
This is the first loan that he has requested via Kiva partner IMPRO, and the first loan with Kiva.
