Gloria Mabel
Mabel is 24 years old, a widow, and has a five year old daughter. She lives with her parents in Maica Central, a rural area of the city of Cochabamba. She works producing milk.

Mabel has been a widow for about three months. She suffered during her husband's illness. He had leukemia, and fought to the end. He had to have treatments, which she suffered with him and her daughter. She also suffered because she lived at home with her in-laws, who were always controlling the things that she did. She is a very hard-working person. When her husband was sick, she took care of him and at the same time, worked to arrange and deliver the milk because she was the one who paid for her husband's treatments and her daughter's education. When her husband died, her mother-in-law told her to leave the house, so she went to work with her parents, who she could count on for support.

She would like a loan to buy a dairy cow and increase her production of milk, so she can work and give a better life to her daughter. Since she was young, she dreamed of being a veterinarian, and she is enrolled in a school in the city that allows her to study, work with cows, spend time with her daughter, and work with her parents to produce milk, since they have a cooling tank to hold the milk and bring it to PIL.

She is a very responsible person who is dedicated to the work that she does, since her parents taught her as a child how to work hard.
