A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a cooling tank for raw milk with a group of people.

Francisca's story

Francisca is 71 years old, is married, and has five adult children. In spite of her age, Francisca is able to continue working with the help of her children. She lives in the town of Esquilan Chico, in the Quillacollo province, in the Cochabamba department. Her main business activity is the production of raw milk. Currently she has 10 head of dairy cattle. She delivers the product to PIL, a factory that makes dairy products.

The purpose of the loan is to buy a cooling tank. This purchase is being made by a group of people who do not have a tank for collecting milk or who have another tank that is too far away. So the group decided to buy a tank that could benefit everyone in the area.

One of her dreams is to continue growing her business until she has a little farm with at least 30 head of cattle that she can pass on to her daughters.
