Gloria M. is 31 years old and is married with six children aged between 13 and 2. She also looks after three dependents.

Gloria has been in the business of selling loincloths for five years, working eleven hours a day and creating jobs for two employees. After realizing that her investment is too low to earn more profit, she is now requesting her first loan from Vision Finance Company in order to expand her business through purchasing more loincloths.

By using this loan, Gloria hopes, with the profit she will get, to help her husband to build their own house and pay school fees for their children.
