The member currently lives in the same city where she was born and there she carries out her commercial activities, for example selling groceries and suckling pigs. She has a small store where she sells her products to her neighbors, and a small oven where she roasts pork. (This typical dish is known in the area as "lechonada"). She has been in business for 15 years and it is going well thanks to her hard work.

The member is requesting a loan to buy pigs for her "lechonada" preparation because the patron saint festivities of the city of Huarocondo will soon be underway.
