A loan of $1,500 helped to buy fodder.

Elvira's story

Elvira is 29 and married to Bernardino. They have three small children who depend on their income. The children are enrolled in primary school. They all live in a home in the Monte Canto community in the city of Cochabamba, Bolivia. They live there even though the house is not completely finished because they were very uncomfortable all living in a single room in Elvira's family's home. Elvira's principal business activity is the production of raw milk from dairy cattle, which is sold to a company that produces dairy products.

The loan is to purchase fodder during this season of shortage. Elvira wants to accumulate fodder in order to not fall short in times of drought. Her livestock will be able to continue eating the same amount and producing the same amount of milk.

Her dreams and goals include growing her milk business and completing construction of her home with respect to the finishing touches.
