Helping a cheesemaker in Boliva named Julia

Couldn't resist this loan - to a cheesemaker in Boliva named Julia.

Julia dedicates herself to the sale of all types of cheeses, such as the chaqueƱo and San Javier which are in great demand in the local markets. She lives alone in a small apartment which has a bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. She has one daughter who now has a home of her own, and they only see each other some weekends. She used to have other people bring back her cheeses, or she received them by parcel post. Now, she personally travels to buy them herself at better prices.
