Luis C. N. and Florentina Coria Guzman have been married for 37 years and have 3 sons and a daughter. Their three sons are married and fully independent; whereas their daughter still lives with them and studies in an institute. They live in a house they own in Mallco Chapi, 23 kilometers west of the city of Cochabamba, in an agricultural and dairy area.

Luis has been working with dairy cattle for 26 years. He delivers all of his milk production to a company that produces all sorts of dairy products to sell in the Cochabamba market. He also has land where he grows corn.

They are requesting this loan in order to purchase feed for their dairy cattle and to build a well and irrigation channels for their crops. This would improve their income since it would increase their corn output and also their milk production.
