Domitila is a member of the Virgen de Los Angeles Village Bank, which meets once per month in the town of Huayllacocha, about an hour from the city of Cusco. She is 51 years old and married with seven children, four of whom are adults living independently in Lima and Cusco, while three are children who still live at home. Domitila owns a small farm with her husband and also has a business buying and selling local products such as barley, broad beans and corn. She buys the crops from her neighbors and resells them in the jungle city of Quillabamba, about five hours away, travelling there about once per month.

Domitila is requesting a loan of 2000 soles to buy wheat, broad beans and corn, pledging to repay this loan on time and in full. She is grateful for the loans offered to her by Asociacion Arariwa since it is the only institution providing financial services in her town.
