Gladis has been investing in shoes since she first began working with Kiva's partner Manuela Ramos six years ago. She has since expanded her business and now sometimes sells clothing and bedsheets as well. Gladis will use this loan of 2000 soles to invest entirely in shoes. Her customers have already placed orders.
Gladis is a member of the communal bank "Las Colinas" (The Hills). Gladis's goal is to some day have her own store where she can sell shoes and purses. She would also like to have a small grocery shop.
