Vicenta, 60, is married and has children who are all independent now. She works making and selling cheese and milk since she has dairy cattle. She lives in Batallas. People from that town work in agriculture and raising cattle.

This loan is her first sequence in the institution and Vicenta will use it to buy a dairy cow; she wants to take advantage of this opportunity. Her reason for requesting the loan is that she does not have money for the purchase which will be of great benefit to her because a good amount of milk will be produced and she will then be able to make more cheese and milk and improve her income.

The business challenge Vicenta faces is forage that must be purchased every so often. She will use benefits to improve her cattle; her wish is to be able to make cheese at wholesale to sell in various markets in the city of La Paz.
