Isabel is 41 years old and has two dependent children of school age. She lives in the province Colcapirua in Cochabamba in the western zone of Colombia. She is working hard to meet her goals and her children are in school and are very good students. All of this is made possible by selling the cheeses that she makes to a local bakery. Her husband Carlos is just as devoted to his job drilling wells for water, which he is very good at thanks to 20 years of experience. The reason for this loan is to buy fodder for her cows to continue making cheese from the milk her cows produce.
