Gabina is a 34 year old woman who lives in the city of Camaná with her 2 young children whom she loves and are her reason for being. By different reasons, sadly she separated from her partner and since then she dedicates all of her energy into getting her family ahead. Gabina is a very kind, hardworking and enthusiastic person despite not being able to finish her primary school education because she needed to work to help her parents and would have liked to finish her education. In her free time, Gabina enjoys watching movies and sometimes cooks a delicious Saltado de Repollo (a type of cabbage salad with fried meat) to share with her family.

By her own initiative and with a lot of dedication and enthusiasm, Gabina started her small shipping business, as she has a small truck that she uses by renting it out to chauffeurs so that they can haul different shipments to various places. She works some 10 hours a day and believes she does well thanks to her perseverance, dedication and for the kind treatment she gives to her customers.

This will allow Gabina to have her work tool to be in optimal conditions to keep using it and hopes to increase her earnings which will help her to keep securing the wellbeing and education of her children.
