In order to make chicha, the first step is producing the malt (otherwise known as “malting”). The malt is produced in a series of phases. First, the corn is soaked in a rectangular stone well ten inches deep for 12-14 hours. The soaking water is periodically replaced to remove any grass or other debris. The entire process can last between 8 to 15 days. The corn is then provided enough exposure to the sun until it germinates. Carmen sells the processed corn to her customers who use it for making chicha.
Carmen participates in her Communal Bank and has done very well because she is a responsible person who is prompt with her payments. She needs a loan to buy more corn.
