A loan of $500 helped buy groceries to stock her grocery store.


Gladys Patricia's story

Mrs. Gladys belongs to the “Supportive Women” Communal Bank. Her business is located on Salaverry Street in the district of Calleria. She is 36 years old and has 3 minor children.

Her business is located in her home and the first loan that she received from Kiva partner Manuela Ramos was for 300 new soles. She invested in the purchase of groceries to stock her small grocery store. Since she began working with Manuela Ramos 2 years ago, her business has been growing, and for this reason she has needed a larger loan.

With this loan of 1,500 new soles she will invest in the purchase of more groceries to stock her small grocery store.

She thanks Manuela Ramos for being an institution that serves the community with the service that it provides women of this region.
