Mujeres Empresarias Group's story

Good day to you. The group "Mujeres Empresarias" [Enterprising Women] is comprised of 9 entrepreneurial and enthusiastic women passing to their 5th cycle. Gladys is one of the members and is in the back row; she is the third from the left side and is wearing a short-sleeved floral shirt.

Gladys is 56 years old, married, and has 2 children, one of whom is school-aged. Gladys makes a living selling lingerie. It all began when she was working in a lingerie store. With the experience she acquired and the good use of her income she was able to start her own business. Thanks to her work she can continue supporting her son in his education. Her greatest wish is to move her lingerie store to a more commercial location.

She solicited the credit to buy underwear, bras, and socks. She thanks Kiva lenders for their support since it makes her progress possible.

In this group: Gladys, Lidia, Maria Alejandrina, Magna, Estela Miriam, Maura Susana*, Claudia Zoraida, Hilda Eleodora, Dalila
