Gavina is a member of the Agua Viva (Living Water), she is 46 years old, she is married and she has 4 children. She breeds sheep and she sells cuyes (“cuy” is Quechua for Guinea pig) and salchipollo (fried potatoes served with fried chicken and sauces). She is deeply grateful to Finca because of the good training they have given her, helping her running a good activity. She will use half of the loan she is currently requesting to buy animal feed to fatten her sheep, and the other half to buy potatoes and chicken.
