Cristina, 44, is married to Abel, 54. Together they are happy to have self-sacrificing children such as Jhorlene, 20, and Jhorge, 18. Currently they live in a house made of adobe that they rent. As a hardworking mother, she chose the trade of preparing food in the market in their town.

Thanks to the support of her children she managed to complete 10 years with her business, so she can give her children what they need for a quality education. Similarly, for a strong family economy, Abel also manages to contribute his monthly income as a public employee, showing himself to be a steady impetus for family progress.

To continue with the solid support of and investment in her children's education, she wants money to send Jhorge to the regional capital so he can apply to a state university. As a responsible mother she hopes to always dedicate the result of her job to her children's well-being because they are the best investment she has managed to have in life.

She wants to have 2,000 nuevos soles [PEN] to pay for her son Jorge's university studies.
