Señora Ana is 35 years of age and has three children, ages 16 years, 12 years and the smallest is 1 year. She lives in the Maica central, which is a neighborhood of the city of Cochabamba to the south. Ana is a hard-working woman who is dedicated to the production of milk.

Ana is a woman that suffered as a girl with the disaffection of her mother, since there were only two sisters which were treated differently. She was the younger and only finished a degree in the neighborhood school, while the other sister always studied in expensive schools in the center of the city. She says that those things do sentimental damage. Ana does not feel a grudge against her parents but is sure that she would never do that with her children. She earned a technical degree but does not practice it because she is always with her children. She works from her house producing milk and also making cheeses that she then delivers and sells to a lady. She does not rely on the salary of a husband. She goes on alone, always working and helping in the education of her children and collaborating in the care of her father. Since he is old, he has health problems and she is the one who takes charge of taking him to the doctor.

She needs the loan to buy a head of cattle and in that way enlarge her production of milk and make more cheese. In this way she will have greater income and sure support for her children so that they can finish school and study for a career. She feels happy to be with them in all her free time. This is the story of Ana.
