A loan of $1,025 helped to buy a dairy cow.

Lenis's story

Lenis has very humble living conditions. He lives in the Cayachata community in the Avaroa-Oruro province with his wife and three children. They work making cheese that they sell at the informal market. Sometimes they sell to the boarding houses in the city of Challapata.

He currently has three head of dairy cows. They make an average of 80 cheeses a week. He carries out this business activity every day throughout the entire year.

He is now looking to improve his quality of life and his standard of living. The loan he is requesting is to buy a dairy cow to be able to increase the amount of cheese he makes.

His family’s effort brought him to the point of undertaking this business activity. The income that they get is not big. He says that it only suffices to pay their cost of living.

Mr. Lenis will be able to have one more dairy cow, and he will be able to increase his production. This way his venture will be growing gradually.
