Gladys Margarita's story

Gladys Margarita and her family live in Montecristi, famous for its straw hats. The place suffered direly from the pandemic.
Gladys is very hard-working and despite adversity she does what she can to earn a living. Loans are very helpful in this regard because they help sustain her business through dire times such as now with the pandemic. Since the start of the lockdown, she has been selling clothes on social media. Now, she is also able to go out to sell clothes, which she does in order to earn more money despite her fears and the risk of contracting the disease.
The loan will be used to buy T-shirts, blouses, trousers, and children's clothes.
