Gladis
Gladis, 53 years old, is married to Aurelio, who is a construction worker. They have 3 children from this marriage, who live with them in their own house.

Gladis makes and sells underclothes for women and men, using a sewing machine that she bought with her savings. She started sewing more than 21 years ago. She started off sewing for family and neighbors, and now has managed to grow her customer base thanks to her good work. Her sister, who is also learning how to sew, helps her.

In the past, she had economic difficulties at home because she didn't have stable employment, and for this reason she started her own business to generate income and support her spouse with household expenses. She wishes to continue working and expand her business, making skirts and shirts to stock her business.

This is her 4th loan with MFP, and she counts on their collaboration to continue working toward her goals. With the amount she is requesting, 3000 nuevos soles, she will buy material for sewing, like fabric and elastic lace, among others. She will buy these in the capital, seeking lower prices for her bulk purchases.
