A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase more clothing.


Gladis Del Carmen's story

Gladis del Carmen C. D. A. is 41 and lives in Soyapango with her two adult children. They are in college, and her husband works as a salesman. Gladis sells clothing in the market in Soyapango. She sells her products every day with the goal of helping her husband pay for their home's expenses since their two children are in college and this generates a rather high cost. They are willing to pay for this for the well-being of their children. She has sold clothing for eight years and has many customers who are very loyal to her. This is why Gladis is requesting a loan, so she can increase the amount of products she has as well as her sales. She will then be able to meet her customers' demand and obtain more customers so she can earn more profits and contribute to the family finances.
