A loan of $1,200 helped to buy a dairy cow.

Emilio's story

Emilio Guitiérrez R. is 50 years old and is single. He lives with his mother in Cochabamba in a neighborhood on the edges of town. He takes care of his mother because he is her only child. He has worked with dairy cattle for 20 years and produces cheese, which he sells at a local market.

He also buys and sells cattle on Tuesdays and Saturdays each week in order to generate a little extra income. With the loan he will buy one dairy cow so that he can produce more cheese and increase his earnings.

In the future, he would like to take out another loan so he can increase his cheese production.
