Gabriela is a member of the Llapanchik community bank. She is 25 years old, lives with her partner, and has three children (one son and two daughters). She has been a member of FINCA Peru for four years and her business is selling cereal. She says that what she likes most are the training sessions that she receives as a member of her community bank because they teach her how to save and how to care for both her family and herself. Her dream is to buy her own home. She will invest the loan that she is requesting in buying cereals such as wheat, quinoa and kiwicha (amaranth) to sell in her business.
