A loan of $1,500 helped to buy soybean husk to feed her cows.

Mary Luz's story

The client, Mary Luz, 32, has no dependent children but she's responsible for her siblings because she's the only family they have. She lives in the province of Colcapirhua in Cochabamba, in the northern area. Persistent in her goals, she studied biochemistry and graduated with very good grades in spite of the fact that her parents died 12 years ago. She has two siblings who are still in school and are very good students.

She makes a living producing raw milk, all of which she sells to the PIL milk factory.

The reason for the current loan is to be able to buy soybean husk to feed her cows, which represent an income to be able to help her siblings get ahead and also study in the university.
