Sandra is 37 years old, tenacious towards her goals, and married with 3 children dependent on her earnings.

Sandra went abroad to search for a better life for her children but about 3 years ago she had to return because one of her children was sick and not healthy. To get to Bolivia she had to spend all they had saved in order to build a house because her son was seriously ill.

A sister gave her 2 cows so she could produce raw milk and make cheese and now she has a 7 heads and the total production is delivered to a business.

Her children are school age and are good students.

The reason for the present loan is to be able to buy fodder for her cattle for the cold winter when it is scarce and the prices go up.
