Daniela’s main economic activity is making and selling cheese. She has her own cows that provide her with milk. She lives with her husband, who is a rural school teacher and also makes a living raising cattle. At the time of Emprender’s visit Daniela was selling her cheeses at a street market in the city of El Alto. This activity is her family’s biggest source of income. She and her husband are asking for a loan so they can purchase rural land on which to grow fodder (alfalfa). This will allow them to improve the quality of their cattle and thus have better income. Daniela has aspirations to succeed, and is grateful to the lending institution for the support it provides.
