Gloria Angelica


A loan of $1,000 helped to buy spare bicycle parts: tires, repair kits, chains, brakes, and break cables.


Gloria Angelica's story

My name is Glora N.. I sell spare parts for bicycles like tires, inner tubes, breaks, chains, oil, pedals, bolts, screws, and steering wheels. I've had my business for 4 years and it's going well because where I live, the majority of people go on bike since it's too expensive to buy a car or go in taxi. At this moment I need to increase my inventory because sales are good due to the extra month of salary paid to private and state employees this month. People take advantage of this to repaid broken things.

With the profits I will make, I will pay for household expenses and for the schooling of my two daughters.

Mi nombre es Gloria N. me dedico a la venta de repuestos para bicicletas como ser llantas, neumaticos, breques, cables de freno, cadenas, aceite, pedales, tuercas, tornillos, timones, tengo mi negocio hace 4 años, el cual es muy bueno ya que en donde vivo la mayoria de la gente se transporta en bicicleta porque es muy caro comprar carros o pagar taxis, en estos momentos necesito mas inventario porque estos dias son muy buenos para las ventas ya que a los empleados privados y estatales lesdan un suelo de mas en este mes, y la gente aprovecha para arreglar las cosas que tienen malas.

Con las ganancias que obtenga poder pagar los gastos alimenticios de mi hogar y pagarle los estudios a mis dos hijas.
