Zoraida's story

The borrower is from the community of Thogo Rancho in Tiraque Province of the Department of Cochabama.

Señora Zoraida was born on 20 August 1971 in Thogo Rancho, Tiraque and currently lives near that community. She is a hardworking woman who is currently in the process of organizing an association of milk producers with the support of the Tiraque mayor’s office, under an inter-institutional agreement with P.D.A.-Tiraque, to sell their dairy products for the municipality’s school breakfast program. The loan that she is applying for is to purchase a dairy cow and cattle feed. Her goal is to increase her family income.

The borrower’s current business is farming. She produces potatoes, peas, and grain. Most of the time her work involves crop production during the planting and harvest seasons and the period in between these seasons, but she doesn’t neglect her secondary business of milk production.

Her home has a slate roof with mud walls and floors. She is married with five children. They come from a place people have a lot of experience with the activities they carry out and are responsible about meeting their obligations to the community. Her husband helps her with milk production.
