Sra. Deysi is 36 years old and lives in the District of Maica Central Parada #3, an area known for its intensive level of dairy farming. She is married to Dorio and they have two school-age children. They have managed their family business, a dairy farm, very well. Everything they produce is delivered to “Planta Industrialadora de Leche” (a South American dairy processing company). Their dairy cows are pure-bred.

Deysi and her husband work on the land that she inherited from her mother. The prices of supplies for her dairy are very expensive and she needs operating capital to buy soybean husks since this component makes up part of the diet for her cows. Grasses are scarce during the winter season, so her cows consume mostly soybean husks.

In addition to working at the dairy, her husband performs auto body repairs in this same area and has a small repair shop at home. Everything that Deysi and her husband do is geared toward improving the living conditions for themselves and their children.
