Gloria Elizabeth Del Carmen
Gloria lives with her husband and their two children, ages 12 and 7 who are both in school. They inherited their house from Gloria's father. She makes and sells pottery, an activity that she learned from a young age from her mother. Today she works to take care of her household from 8am until 4pm. The process starts by pulling the dirt, preparing it, setting the mud, scraping it, drying it, sanding it down, and finally firing the finished product.

She asks for a loan to buy dirt, nacaschol [a product used to make black dye] and firewood, which are needed to make the pottery. This loan will be very helpful to her because she'll have the basic materials that she needs to continue producing the pots, griddles, frying pans and other cooking utensils that are made from the mud called Loza.

Her dream is through her business to be able to propel her children in their studies, because she wasn't able to go to school and she wants to see them become professionals so that they can have a better future and opportunities. In her business, she wants to continue improving her production and number of customers.
