A loan of $1,000 helped to buy two dairy cows.

Doris's story

Sra. Doris engages in agriculture, which includes growing vegetables and tubers. Her husband works as a bricklayer. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy two dairy cows of moderate quality. She wants to produce milk in order to improve the family income. This type of business is lucrative in every sector of the Bolivian highlands. Doris lives at home with her parents in the town of Palomar in the Department of La Paz. She is married and still has no children.

This is the first time Doris has obtained a loan. She hopes to improve her family’s financial situation and increase her operating capital.
