Wilma Francisca
Wilma Franciasca, 33, lives alone in Cochabamba with her two, small children; her husband lives in Santa Cruz. Wilma lives near Mallco Rancho, in the outskirts of the city, in a farming area of Sipe-Sipe, Quillacollo province.

Wilma is a raw milk farmer; she and her family are always looking for ways to improve their quality of life. This is why her husband moved to Santa Cruz: to find work and send back money to the family from there. Despite the couple’s joint efforts, they are still unable to meet all household expenses and provide all they’d like for their children. They live in two, rudimentary, cold little rooms with adobe walls. She cooks in a hearth with firewood and uses clay pots. Wilma dreams with buying a small lot where she can provide shelter and sustenance for her wee ones.

She is asking for funds to buy feed for her cows to increase milk production and to make quesillo (a cottage-cheese like product) so that income will increase and she can offer her family with an improved standard of living.
