Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

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

Teodora's story

Teodora works in a rural area of La Paz. She is a small famer, and produces cow's milk. She works with her husband, and both are senior citizens. For this reason they were discriminated against by other institutions and had their loan request rejected.

They live in the Chuñu Chuñuni community of the Los Andes province, two and a half hours from the city of El Alto.

The loan she is now seeking will be used to buy a medium quality dairy cow to increase her milk production and improve her income.

This is her second loan with Impro. Thanks to her good repayment history with the institution she is able to apply for a new loan.
