Sonia is married and has one dependent child. She is from a humble family, and she lives in the settlement of Cotapachi. She works producing raw milk, but her livestock produces very little. For this reason, she is requesting a loan to buy a dairy cow. This will be very beneficial, because it will increase her production, and in turn increase her income to cover her family's expenses.

CIDRE is a Bolivian microfinance institution with a strong social commitment to the community. It works to provide quality financial services to rural and peri-urban borrowers, focusing primarily on agricultural loans for dairy farmers and micro-enterprises. CIDRE targets segments of the population that have not traditionally had access to credit, and invests in much-needed community development projects. It is currently working with coca farmers in the Chapare region to replace coca with less controversial crops. Get more involved by joining the Friends of CIDRE lending team.
