A loan of $700 helped to buy a dairy cow.

Dora's story

Dora lives in the Viloma Grande area, 25km from the city of Cochabamba. She works in raw-milk production and agriculture, cultivating onions, carrots and corn. She has three small children, who are 12, 7 and 5 years old. Her partner left her three years ago. Since then, they have lived alone in their home. She has always looked for a way to support her household, which is why she undertakes multiple economic activities, such as agriculture, dairy farming and also helping in a nursery taking care of the plants.

Now she wants to increase the number of her cattle in order to have greater monthly income, since agriculture only helps her on a seasonal basis every six months or when it is harvest time. She needs more monthly income to support her children. For this reason, she sought a loan in order to buy herself one more cow.
