Juan Carlos
Juan Carlos, 24, lives in La Maica, a rural zone in Cochabamba. He and his wife are dairy farmers and they have a three year old son.

He is a very responsible person who is dedicated to the work he does. He has four head of dairy cattle. He has been in this line of work since he was very young because his mother did the same. Because he is the youngest sibling he was always at her side working with her. Juan Carlos’ mother died six years ago due to an illness she fought against since she was a little girl and got Chagas disease. This is a disease she fought against for many years but still she was always struggling together with her children to get ahead since their father abandoned them when they were children.

Juan Carlos struggles daily and values the sacrifice his mother made for his sisters and for himself. He is asking for funds to buy a truckload of soy husks which is the feed for his cattle so that he can generate higher income and produce more milk. He currently extracts 150 liters of milk daily which he delivers to his mother-in-law to make “quesillo” (small fresh farm cheese popular in the Cochabamba valley.)

Juan Carlos wants a better future for his son. This is why he works from very early in the morning and does other farming chores. He and his wife want to get married in the not too distant future and work together to help their son study a professional career and have a better future than he has had.
