Agustina is 62 years old, married, and has two adult children who are independent. She was not able to finish elementary school.

Agustina makes her living selling handicrafts of all types. These incluD. embroidered cloth and fabrics, hand woven items, crochet, macramé, and other products. She has a craft stand in the city of Puno. With her first loan from Manuela Ramos, which was in the amount of 300 PEN, she was able to increase her capital.
