Gloria De Los Angeles
Gloria de los Ángeles, 43, sells general merchandise. She has been in this business for over seven years. Gloria had to look for a way to pay the household debts. She started to sell “nacatamales” (a traditional Central American dish similar to a tamale) in her humble home. With her earnings, she was able to buy a few clothes. On the week ends she sold her nacatamales, and on the weekdays she left to sell her products. But, it was too tiring. She decided to stay with selling general merchandise.

She now comes to the Fundación León 2000 in order to buy the necessary products.

Gloria’s dream is to have her own store.
