She is 49, married, and she has eight children (two still under her care). Guillermina did not have the opportunity to go to school. She lives in the Urani Marco Kollo community.

She has worked with the Movimiento Manuela Ramos for years. She used her initial loan for 300 PEN to buy small livestock.

She now needs a loan for 1,000 PEN to buy large livestock to fatten. Guillermina also helps on her farm.

She likes the savings and the talks.
