At present, she has a business where she produces and sells chocolates. She's been doing this for many years, which she learned from her sister-in-law's group. She will use this credit to increase her capital (purchasing sugar) that she will buy from the fair market in El Alto. She will then make the chocolate and sell it in the city of Oruro.
