The businesses that the members of the community association have are varied, among some are: raise of livestock, neighborhood store and vegetable garden.

Lucia indicates that this is her first year at Pro-Mujer invited by them and her neighbors. Currently she has a business to raise livestock that she learned to do from her parents.

She will use the loan to buy feed at Achocalla to raise her cattle and sell it after. This business allows her to raise income to support her family; she is married and has three children.
When asked what she likes about Pro-Mujer, her answer is their attention to health and saving.
