Tiburcina belongs to the Agua Viva community bank. She is 52 years old, is married, and has 7 children. Her youngest son is 7 years old. Tiburcina sells anticuchos (grilled meat on a stick) of beef, chicken, and tripe. She does this as a walking vendor on the Puente del Ejercito (Army Bridge). Her business helps support her family, since her husband doesn't have permanent work. The loan that she is applying for will be invested in the purchase of sacks of potatoes, oil, vinegar, and other ingredients for the preparation of the anticicuchos.

She likes Finca because she can have access to credit, since in other institutions they would not give it to her because she is a walking vendor. In the training she has learned to save, to work, and to respect herself.

He dreams are to be able to rent a location where she could sell her anticuchos and for her children to have careers.
