Gladis
54-year-old Gladis is a cheerful and tenacious woman. She is married to Armancio who is retired. Gladis lives in her own home which she built with her husband's support. The couple have four children. They live with their children and their daughter-in-law.

Gladis has a small grocery store in her home where she serves her customers every day from very early in the morning. She is very friendly and kind to all her customers who are mainly neighbors. She has enjoyed a friendly, respectful relationship with them during the ten years that she has been running her store. She generally works alone but sometimes has help from her daughter-in-law. Gladis buys her stock every two weeks in the main city in her district, which is one hour's journey from her home. She likes her business because it allows her to be at home during the day and help her younger children with their school work. Also, the income she makes helps her to cover her household's basic expenses. Given the good results that she has had up to now, she plans to continue in her business and both expand and improve her small store.

This is Gladis' ninth loan from MFP and she is very determined to make her repayments on time as she has done with her previous loans. She very much enjoys belonging to her group as all the members are very punctual and responsible. She will use the 1,000 soles she has requested to buy more groceries such as rice, sugar, milk, noodles, candies, soda, drinks, etc. wholesale.
