The “AMIGAS DE HUANCANE” group will begin their 18th cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Focus Center of Copacabana, it's formed by 8 members and lead by a board of directors where Nicolasa is the president. The businesses of the community group members are varied, such as: milk and cheese sales, sales of jerky by the country's borders, fish sales.

The loan requested will benefit the micro-entrepreneurs' group where Nicolasa is a member, she indicates that this is the first time she came to Pro Mujer, she joined after being invited by one of the institution promoters that went to see her at home. She currently sells cheese and milk, she indicates that many of the people in her community work on the same business and that's the reason why she started to sell dairy.

The loan requested is to increase working capital to buy cows that she will get from the surrounding communities and she will later raise at her ranch. This form of work will allow her to generate income to support her family, she is married with two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says the work they do.
