Maria Hilda
Maria is 33 years old, a hard-working, responsible woman. She is a single mom, and has a 14-year-old son. She lives with her father in Viloma, a canton of the Sipe Sipe municipality, province of Quillacolla, 20 km. from Cochabamba.

For the past fifteen years, she has worked in dairy, since her mother died. She also sees to her father’s well-being, as he is elderly and can no longer work. That’s why she takes care of him, for she is the youngest sibling, and the only woman in the family. Maria is a hard-working woman who gets up very early to milk the cows and deliver milk to the station in the area. She also farms, growing onions and carrots in certain seasons.

She is devoted to her work but does not neglect her son’s upbringing, and consistently supports him in his schooling. Her dream is for her son to enroll in the university to complete his studies. She wants him to study medicine and thus be able to help the people in the community where they live. It is an isolated area whose inhabitants struggle to make a living.

She is asking for a loan to purchase cattle and thus increase milk production and deliver more to the station. This will enable her to increase her earnings and provide a better future for her son and make her father more comfortable in his old age. He always worked for her brothers and for her, and that is why she strives to be better each day.
