All are married and have an average of 4 children of various ages, from baby to university age.

There are diverse businesses within the association, selling clothing is one of them, selling in the markets of El Alto city; also some sells cosmetics in stands and as a street vendor; another activity in the association is the selling of Patacamaya (a locale near La Paz) cheese, where they make trips to this locale to stock up with a good quantity of cheese to then sell in the markets and festivals of the city.
