Gloria Yessenia
Gloria, 40, is married and has three daughters. She has made a living in agriculture since she was 14; her father taught her. Currently she does this work with her husband. She also has a chicken farm.

She gets up at 5 a.m. to make breakfast for her daughters, then takes them to school. Later she feeds her chickens, then goes to the field with her husband to work. Finally, at midday she returns home to make lunch for her daughters.

The loan she's requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy fifteen sacks of fertilizer, three gallons of herbicide, three liters of pesticide, and two bags of seed. She has rented the land with her father, but they don't have the money to buy inputs and plant corn.

Her dream is to see her daughters graduate from the university.
