A loan of $1,500 helped to buy soy for livestock.

Miriam's story

Miriam is 39 years old. She lives in the zone of Sexta Parte, a region of Vinto, which is a province of Quillacollo to the west of the city Cochabamba. She is married to Alberto Vásquez and they have three small children that still depend on them economically. Miriam works in milk and fresh cheese production. Every day, Miriam and Alberto work from very early milking the cows and in the afternoon Mirian makes the fresh cheeses to be able to deliver them to a person that sells them in a market in the region of Vinto. Alberto works in a potato seed production company in the town of Morochata.

The loan they are requesting will be used to buy soy for their livestock, and through this have good production. Miriam is a very responsible and hard-working person, and because of this they will have a larger income and will be able to give a better eduction to their children, since Miriam and Alberto didn't finish school.
