Gloria's story

Gloria is 48 years old, and lives with her partner (Alfonso), also 48 years old, and their 3 children, Alfonso, 25, Carlos, 23 and Luis Angel,9, in their own home.


Gloria devotes her attention to her book shop/bazaar, which she runs out of her home, allowing her to take care of her children while earning a good income. Gloria loves her work, because it is calm and she always has lots of customers, who in addition to buying stay and talk with Gloria, since she is very friendly with everyone. Her charisma has given her whole neighborhood an appreciation for her, and they visit frequently to buy the items she offers, as her shop is well stocked. For the future, Gloria would like to improve and expand the area her mini-bazaar occupies, since she has noticed that these items (decorations, toys, personal accessories) are in great demand.



This is Gloria's first loan with MFP. She is very responsible with her business and promises to make all her payments on time. With the money she is requesting, Gloria will purchase greater quantities of notebooks, since she is running out and they are very popular, as well as other articles for teh bazaar.
