A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase with partners a cooling tank for milk.

Leonarda's story

Leonarda, a hard worker, is 33 years old. She lives in the Esquilan Chico area in the province of Quillacollo. She earns her daily bread by selling milk from dairy cows. Leonarda lives with her family.

She is asking for a loan, along with her nearby partners, in order to buy a cooling tank for the milk in order to keep the milk from spoiling. It is a serious loss of income to their families when they lose milk to spoilage because they rely almost entirely on the sale of fresh raw milk.

She is very grateful to the people who help her through Kiva for the opportunity of making her dream come true. Her future plans include asking for a new loan in order to improve their farm.
