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


Ilda's story

Ilda is 34, married to Néstor Quiroz, and has three children. Their family has scant economic resources. They currently do not have their own house. Ilda works taking care of the house in which they live. She receives a small monthly payment.

Ilda and her family live in the city of Cochabamba in Viloma Grande. Her main activity is the production of raw milk. She sells her production to a business that makes dairy products. She currently only has three heads of dairy cows. She also has a team that she rents to plow the land.

Ilda is a very hard-worker, and she does several other activities. One of those activities is selling alfalfa. Her husband works in construction. He works as a contractor in the same area.

The loan is to buy a dairy cow to increase milk production and improve earnings. Among her dreams and goals is giving her children a home and an education until they have a professional career.

Ilda has a piece of land that she inherited from her father. Her goal now is to build a beautiful house with rooms for her three children. The house they live in only has two rooms, and they are very uncomfortable.
