Gladys Miriam's story
Gladys is 44 years old. She provides her services as a nurse and gynecologist in a peri-urban area. She lives with her husband and two children in a place in Perimetral de Guayaquil, an area which is surrounded by a salt marsh. Since she was very young, Gladys has always liked to help people to improve their lives. When she started university she decided to specialize in gynecology. She didn't just want to become a doctor but also wanted to help people where she lived who couldn't afford medical treatment. She set up her business in “Bastión Popular”, providing nursing and gynecological services at very affordable prices. She currently provides her services as a doctor in premises which are located in her own home and in the “Bastión” area. She also helps women who want to improve themselves and haven't had the opportunity to study, teaching them to perform medical check-ups and plan their family lives. In order to continue helping women, she would like to use her loan to buy nursing and gynecological materials. In the future, she would like to open a new doctor's office in the south of the city since that is where most people who haven't had the opportunity to improve themselves live.
