Gabriela Gisselle's story

Gabriela is 20 years old. She went to school up through ninth grade. She is married and has a son. Her husband works in farming.

Gabriela has worked raising and selling beef cattle and pigs for two years, a job that she learned from her grandmother. Gabriela is looking for someone to sell her livestock to raise at her house and sell after a while. She works from 6:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Gabriela will use the loan to buy two heifers to raise and later sell.

Gabriela dreams of obtaining good profits and buying a car to transport the cattle.
