Alicia Mabel's story

Alicia Mabel M. O. is 24 years old and lives in the southern part of Cochabamba in an area known as Pucarita Chica. She is single and currently lives with her sister and mother.

Alicia produces raw milk which she sells to a company that makes a variety of dairy products. She has been doing this for more than 6 years, taking over the business from her mother who is old and can no longer manage the cows. Alicia's sister helps her care for the cows every afternoon when she gets home from high school.

Alicia is requesting a loan to be able to purchase a plot of land where she will plant food for her cattle. This will help her as the feed is very expensive and by growing it herself she will save money.

Alicia's big dream is to be able to increase milk production and thereby her income so that she can both help her sister go to college and make improvements to her home.
