A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase another dairy cow.

Juan's story

Juan, 43, works as a farmer and as a bricklayer. When Juan was a little boy, his father abandoned their family. At that point, to help support his family, Juan learned agriculture and dairy cow farming. Juan has been married for over twenty years, and has six children whose ages range from 2 to 19 years. They are a poor family with few economic resources. Their oldest daughter, who could only attended primary school, is now working in Argentina and sending helpful remittances back to her family.

Juan lives in a small home in the community of Chaupisuyo, which is in the city of Cochabamba. He has three dairy cows that produce milk. Juan sells the milk to a business that turns it into various milk products. This loan will be used to purchase another dairy cow, which will help Juan grow his milk production. That will help him increase his profits and improve the quality of life for his family. He hopes to use the extra earnings to remodel his home and help his five younger children pursue professional careers.
