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


Eustaquia's story

Eustaquia is a 74 year old widow with three independent children who do not live in Cochabamba. She has a small farm with nine milk cows. Her granddaughter who has lived with her since she was little helps her on the farm. She is the only support Eustaquia has had since her husband died 15 years ago.

Eustaquia is a very active lady and working with her milk herd is her life. Currently some of the cows are pregnant and she needs capital to invest in a small cow. This is to increase the milk production so that she can keep up the milk quota she supplies to the industrial plant, since she will lose her share if her production and delivery of milk decreases too much.
