Francisca is 48 years old, a widow, and lives with her two daughters who attend the university in the city of Cochabamba. She is the one in charge of paying for her daughters’ educational expenses.
Francisca has been in the dairy business for more than 7 years. She has 8 milking cows that produce 115 liters per day. She delivers all the milk they produce to an enterprise that makes a variety of dairy products.
She needs this loan to buy livestock feed because it is the cold season and there was not a lot of food to stock up with previously.
