Gloria's story

Gloria is 32 years off age, she lives with her husband and their two children. In the afternoons she tends to her clothing stand. The clothes are made of wool, hand knitted and also machine made. The articles of clothing she sells are anything from sweaters to jackets, with only the most beautiful stitching and colors. This business came about because she wanted a steady income. It has now been 14 years since she's been selling these items, now known to be artesan's fine crafts. Her stand is located in a zone where many other items native to her region are sold. Gloria's only challenge is she doesn't have enough time, but slowly she is improving. She is requesting a loan for the first time, but she is committed to be responsible with her payments. With these funs she will be able to add selection to her merchandise and improve her sales. Gloria buys directly from artesans.
