Cirila's story

Cirila C., 36, is a very responsible woman who is dedicated to her work. Three years ago her mother died and she had to take in her two younger brothers; she does not know her father because he abandoned them when they were very young. Cirila lives in the city of Cochabamba in the Vinto Chico community, in a small house that her mother left her. Her main activity is raw milk production that is delivered to a firm that manufactures dairy products. Currently, she has 6 head of dairy cattle. The funds will be used to by another cow which will increase milk production and thereby income. Among her dreams and goals is to increase her herd of dairy cattle and, most importantly, to continue to help her two brothers so that they can study professional careers since she wasn't even able to finish high school because of the extreme poverty which led to her mother's illness that lasted three years during which time she had to care for her mother and work.
