Primitiva
Mrs. Primitiva H. C. is 65 years old and has one daughter. She only completed primary school. Primitiva lives with her daughter in the Itocta zone in the province of Cercado in the department of Cochabamba.

Primitivia works in raw milk production. She delivers her milk to a local dairy producer who then delivers the milk to Pil Andina.

They live in precarious conditions. Their house has small rooms made from clay. Her dairy cows live on the same small property. Mrs. Primitiva is very dedicated to her work. She and her daughter wake up early every day to milk their cows and then during the day they make sure their cows get to graze. This work can be quite arduous for both of them.

Primitiva will use the loan money to purchase animal feed because during the winter there is limited food. With feed the cows will produce more milk and thus increase her earnings and let her have a more stable life.
