Gladys Rosario
The communal bank “La Negrita” meets every fifteen days in the Montecristi Canton, which is known for its rich pre-colonial culture and for its handicrafts, which are recognized nationally and internationally. It is the home of the famous Panama hat.

This is where Gladys lives. She is 45, married, and has four children with her husband. Three of the children are grown, and the youngest is 13 years old and studies in a local secondary school. The youngest daughter lives at home. Her husband is a chauffeur.

Several years ago, Gladys studied dressmaking and earned an artisan’s certificate in this field. She installed a small dressmaker’s workshop in her home with the goal of having her own income and taking advantage of her dressmaking knowledge. There she makes all kinds of clothes for women, men, and children. She recognizes that what she likes best is to make clothes for women or children, but she also has a candy store where she sells all kinds of candies and sweets. She works based on individual requests, although in periods she’ll make uniforms for institutions, elementary and secondary schools in the area. She works every day from 6 in the morning until 10 at night, and sometimes later when she has orders to finish.

This new loan will be used to purchase candies, fabrics, and other materials to make clothing. She is the founder of the group, which she likes because of the support she receives with the loans.

Her dream is to give the best to her youngest daughter.
