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

Pablo's story

Pablo, 51, is married to Marina Alba Gonzalez. They have three children (25, 22, and 19). They are a family with scarce economic resources. Their oldest daughter studied for a professional career (Auditor), but necessity obligated her to leave the country to work. She went to Spain to work, and therefore left her studies.

Pablo and his family live in the city of Cochabamba in the Maica Central community. They have their own small house with only two rooms in which all of them somehow have to be comfortable. His main activity is producing raw milk. He currently has six head of dairy cows. He delivers his product to a business that produces different dairy products.

The loan is to buy a dairy cow, which will increase his raw milk production. This will increase his income and improve his standard of living.

Among his goals and dreams is to rebuild his house to have more rooms so that his children can be more comfortable, get more dairy cows, and have his daughter return from Spain and be able to finish her career studies.
