Gloria Argentina is 37 years old and married. She is from Chinandega, which is located in the western part of the country. She is a hard-working and responsible woman who has had to put a lot of effort in to get ahead as she comes from a very common and poor family, which means she could not finish her studies. With the little that she learnt she succeeded in setting up a sewing workshop where she makes garments for women, men, and children. She has regular clients and occasional clients.
Gloria has wanted to repair her home for more than a year. This loan will be used to rebuild a wall which is deteriorating and to change the roof in one of the rooms. She has not been able to do this yet due to a lack of economic resources. One of her dreams is to finish building her home. She is requesting financing in order to buy corrugated galvanised iron, iron, cinder blocks, cement, lime, sand, and other construction materials.
