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

Gregoria's story

Gregoria C. O. has been raising cattle for three years. She has three cows which she looks after and feeds. Her husband works as a construction worker in the area. They only get to see each other at night since he is out of the house all day and has little time to see their two small children who are not in school yet.

This is a family of few economic means. They live in a very poorly-built house in Sipe Sipe, almost 22km from the city of Cochabamba. They are requesting a loan so that they can buy a dairy cow which will give them the possibility to make a little more income with which they can feed their children. It will also give them the possibility to grow their working capital.
