A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase a dairy cow.

Fidel Mario's story

Fidel is 51 years old. He married with one 15-year-old son. He makes a living from the production and sale of cheese and milk since he has cattle. He lives in the locality of Cohana. The people of Cohana make a living from agriculture and farming.

This loan is his first cycle with the institution. Fidel will use this loan to purchase a dairy cow and he wants to make the most of this opportunity. The reason he is requesting this loan is because he has no money to make the purchase. The loan will benefit him greatly since the new dairy cow will give him a great quantity of milk, thereby allowing him to produce more cheese and milk and improve his income.

Fidel faces challenges in his business, such as having to buy fodder every so often, and he will use the profits to improve his herd. His wish is to be able to make cheeses wholesale and offer them to different markets in the city of La Paz.
