Nicolasa lives with her family in their own home. She is 52 years old, married, and finished primary school. Her three dependent children are in her care.

Her economic activity that she works in together with her husband is farming. They grow potatoes, beans and peas on their own irrigated plots, and other interim land located in the community of Pucara Chico, some 6 kilometers from the town of Tiraque.

In conclusion, Nicolasa and her husband show themselves to be hardworking and responsible people who want to get ahead and increase their agricultural production and to do this they need to ask for supplemental funds for the purchase of agricultural land and to buy construction supplies, so that they can obtain better financial income in order to improve the quality of life for their dependents.
