Gladys's story

Gladys is a woman with dreams. She lives in Suhum with her husband and two children. She is determined for them to have a good and well-rounded education.

Gladys is 46 years old, and for the past 7 years she has run her own wig and cosmetics shop. She gets the expected individuals who want her expertise, but she is also getting hair dressers to come and buy her wigs. The problem she’s had is she doesn’t have much money to build up her inventory, so some clients aren’t able to get what they want.

With the help of Kiva lenders and Advans, Gladys is asking for a loan so she can buy new and different wigs and cosmetics, growing her business so she can support her children. She is positive she can repay the loan on time.

Gladys wants to make a difference in people’s lives, and you can help her!
