Elsa Betty's story

Elsa Betty C. D. C. has been married for over 20 years. Her husband is Silvio C. Coca, and together they have two daughters who are attending a university in the city of Cochabamba. Both are studying for a career in livestock farming. In their free time, the daughters help their mom and dad care for their cows. Elsa lives in the area known as Maica Chica in Cochabamba; this is where she keeps her cows and sells their milk to a company that produces various types of dairy products. She is seeking a loan for the purchase of one more dairy cow. Elsa has already had three loans with our institution and demonstrated that she is a very hard-working and responsible person. Furthermore, in the time since her first loan she was able to double the production of milk and the headcount of her cow herd. Elsa's biggest dream is to see her daughters grow up to become good professionals so that they could have a life that is better than the one she had.
