Gloria
View original language description ↓
Gloria Toleda is a calm, honest and very hardworking woman who started her own business in order to supplement her income after the death of her husband, since the money she received from his pension wasn't enough to provide for her two children. She started working for herself in February of 1993, when the family owned a taco stand at their local market, started thanks to a loan they had received. But after her husband passed away, Gloria wasn't able to maintain the business on her own and had to sell it. Afterwards, she worked selling various products in order to support her children. Then a friend invited her to take a craft class, which she really enjoyed. This led her to start her own craft business, with her friend sending her customers. So far, her customers have been very satisfied with her work and have been recommending her products to relatives and other friends, allowing Gloria's business to keep growing.


Now Gloria is seeking a $450 loan, to be paid in 5 months, in order to buy the basic materials that she uses to make her products and be able to fill all of her orders. Your generosity will help Gloria continue to move forward with her business.

Gloria T. es una persona tranquila, honesta y muy trabajadora inició el negocio por la necesidad de tener otro ingreso, ya que su esposo falleció y la pensión que le dejó no me era suficiente. Necesitaba tener un ingreso que le permitiera sacar adelante a sus hijos ya que tuvo que hacerse cargo de sus hijos. Comenzó en Febrero de 1993, antes de fallecer su esposo tenían una taquería en el mercado que habían puesto gracias a un crédito que obtuvieron, pero después de fallecer yo ya no pudo atenderla por lo cual tuvo que traspasarla y se dedico a vender diversas cosas para sostener a sus hijos, fue entonces que una amiga la invitó a tomar un curso de manualidades el cual le gustó mucho, animándose a poner su negocio y su amiga le comenzó a enviar clientes, los cuales quedaban contentos con su trabajo y la iban recomendando entre sus familiares y amistades y desde entonces le ha ido muy bien.


Ahora solicita un crédito por US $450 que pagara en 5 meses para comprar materia prima que le permita seguir elaborando adornos y poder surtir los pedidos de sus clientes. Con tu ayuda Gloria seguirá adelante.
