A loan of $1,000 helped to pay her share of a raw milk cooling tank.

Carmen Rosa's story

Carmen Rosa, 30, has a spouse and four small children who depend on her income. They live in the community of Esquilan Chico in a small house. Her main activity is raw milk production. She currently owns two heads of dairy cattle in production and one pregnant cow. She sells the milk to PIL which is a firm dedicated to manufacturing dairy products.

The loan is to buy a cooling tank. This purchase is being undertaken by a group of people who did not have a milk storage tank. Currently, there is another tank in existence but it’s too far away to transport the milk there to be stored. The purchase of said tank will benefit the entire group because it will be installed in the area.

Among her dreams and goals for the future are to have a small farm and start to build a new house because the one she has built now is in poor condition.
