Gladis's story

Gladis is 48 years old and is married to Alfredo, the father of her children who are already grown up; because her children are independent she lives with just her husband in a house they own. Gladis makes a living from selling regional food in the mornings. For this she has a stall in the market near her house, where she attends to her customers in a friendly and cordial manner, gaining their loyalty. She started her business more than 10 years ago with her own capital, preparing food in small quantities. Seeing the niche that her business had, she decided to continue, and today she has the support of her husband in the preparation of the food and serving customers. She decided to start this business because of the need to have employment and financial income to cover her family’s expenses. Seeing the good results that she is having with her business, she has plans to continue and to grow her business. This will therefore be her first loan with Kiva, and she feels grateful for the financial support she is receiving to keep going. She also commits to paying her fees in a punctual manner. With the requested amount of 500 Peruvian nuevos soles, she will buy cooking utensils like pots, plates, glasses and other items to replace the ones she has and thus provide her customers with better service.
