Is there a language which shows gender agreement in infinitives?

I am looking for a language which shows gender agreement and has infected infinitives for a project discovering a very peculiar control phenomenon. In short, I am planning to discover which DP controls which infinitive in the following sentence: Peter persuaded Mary to be allowed to leave early. My research so far shows very interesting phenomena in subject-object control shift. It would be lovely to find a language with the above listed features.

Thanks is advance!

Is there a language which shows gender agreement in infinitives?

I am looking for a language which shows gender agreement and has infected inflected infinitives for a project discovering a very peculiar control phenomenon. In short, I am planning to discover which DP controls which infinitive in the following sentence: Peter persuaded Mary to be allowed to leave early. My research so far shows very interesting phenomena in subject-object control shift. It would be lovely to find a language with the above listed features.
