Felipa
Felipa is 30 years old and married. She just has an elementary school education. She has three children. Felipa lives with her husband. Their home is in the Itocta zone that is in the southwestern part of the Cercado department in Cochabamba.

Felipe and her husband produce raw milk. They deliver all of their milk production to a cooperative in the area. It is later collected by PIL ANDINA, a dairy factory.

Their living conditions are modest, and they have the basic services. She keeps her livestock on land bordering her home. Felipa is a woman who is very dedicated to her work. She and her husband (their children are still very small) get up very early every day to milk the cows. They work all day taking care of the cows. The whole family participates in this activity.

Felipa is requesting the loan to get feed for her cattle. It is their opportunity to get provisions for the dry season. This is the way to be sure that they have feed for their dairy cows. Also, they can maintain their milk production in such a way that their income continues to be stable and does not decrease.

Felipa’s dream is for her children to be able to go to school, have good nourishment, and have a safe house.
