Cristina Gabriela
Gabriela is from the city of Pisco. She is 32 years old and has been working as a farmer for more than three years. She learned this business from her parents who spent a lot of effort motivating her to care for nature.

Gabriela is currently in the process of becoming independent. For this reason, she would like to have a good harvest. She has requested loans in the past and has shown herself to be a very good client. On this occasion, she would like Kiva lenders to help her so that she can buy some products for taking care of her plants such as fertilizers and pesticides that she needs for her new crops.

Gabriela's dream is to improve the quality of life of her two dependent children. She would also like to own her own plot of land and strengthen her position as an independent person. She tells us that she would very much like to be able to export products abroad such as yellow corn, white corn and cotton.
