Alicia, 48, has four adult children. She was widowed when her children were little but she says she got ahead by herself. She works selling milk and cheese since she owns dairy cows. She lives in Higachi and this loan is her first sequence in the institution. Alicia will use the loan to buy dairy cows and forage for them. Her reason for requesting this loan is that she does not have money and she needs to feed her cattle well so that it will produce good amounts of milk so she can produce more cheese and improve her income. The business challenge Alicia faces is that forage must be purchased every so often. She will use profits to improve her cattle; she dreams with buying more dairy cows
