Our client, Elsa, lives alone. She is single and does not have any children. Her business is producing raw milk. Elsa currently has three head of dairy cattle which are producing milk and one head of dairy cattle which is pregnant. Her loan will be used to buy a milk cooling tank. A group of people are making a big effort to buy a cooling tank as the milk that their cows produce travels a long way to be delivered. This purchase will be a great benefit for our client and also for her fellow dairy farmers. Our client currently lives in the village of Esquilan Chico which is located in Quillacollo province, in Cochabamba department.
