Sra. Lucia is married and has dependent children. Her humble family lives in an area that is south of the city of Cochabamba.
Lucia's business involves producing raw milk. However, production has been low because her cows are not well-fed. For this reason, she is requesting a loan of 10,200 BOB in order to buy balanced feed and soybeans for her cows. She is part of a group in which the members will purchase supplies at the same time.
