She was schooled through the second primary level, her business is bread making. Gabina tells us that her first loan from Movimiento Manuela Ramos in the amount of $110 increased her capital. She is now requesting a loan of $75 in order to buy sugar, flour, butter, etc. Her dream for the future is to sell more and increase her profits. She especially likes the meetings and the responsibility of her communal bank.
