Janeth is 23 years old, married, has one dependent child, and lives in the town of Esquilan Chico in a small house. Her main business activity is producing raw milk. Currently she has three head of dairy cattle. She sells the milk to a factory that makes dairy products.
The loan is to buy a cooling tank. This purchase is being made for a group of people who do not have their own cooling talk to collect all their milk. There is another tank but it is located very far away. The purchase of this new tank will benefit everyone.
Among her dreams is, in the near future, to have a small farm with many dairy cows.
CIDRE is a Bolivian microfinance institution with a strong social commitment to the community. It works to provide quality financial services to rural and peri-urban borrowers, focusing primarily on agricultural loans for dairy farmers and micro-enterprises. CIDRE targets segments of the population that have not traditionally had access to credit, and invests in much-needed community development projects. It is currently working with coca farmers in the Chapare region to replace coca with less controversial crops. Get more involved by joining the Friends of CIDRE lending team.
