Gladys Natividad's story

Gladys is 66 years old and a widow. She has six children, four who are grown and two of whom died. They live in San Mateo, one of the most important parishes in Manta. It has exquisite gastronomy, some beaches, hotels, and other sites of interest for tourists.

Gladys is a very humble woman who likes to work honestly to make her own financial resources to cover her household expenses. For that reason, and thanks to the loans, she continues with her business in her house where she sells delicious lunches. She only works on the weekends, as those are the days with more tourists.

The loans are a big help to her because they allow her to continue with her business. She will use this loan to buy ingredients and to provide maintenance to her locale. Her dream is that her business continue growing so she can continue improving her quality of life.
