Yessenia is married and the mother of three children who are adult and independent. Her children and her husband help her work by providing labor. She works in agricultural production: cattle, growing basic grains, raising and fattening pigs, and chickens.

Thanks to the diversification of her work, she has obtained good profits. At this time, she requests a loan to plant six "manzanas" of improved corn. She will invest the funds in the purchase of improved seeds, fertilizer spray supplies, and fertilizers. All of this has the goal of providing good technical care and obtaining excellent returns at harvest time.
