Gladys Maria's story

Mrs. Gladys Martínez is 34 years old, an enterprising woman that sells varied products to improve her family income. She has three sons who together with her husband she needs to support so that they can continue their plan of study and become more successful persons with a better education. She plans to be able to attain this goal for her children with the hope of growing her business more each day. Thanks to God she has been able to get many customers this month and has several orders, but for lack of funds she cannot meet the demand of her orders. This loan will enable her to invest in the purchase of clothing, shoes, small electric appliances. She is expecting good results, thanks to her husband who gave her money to start this sales business, and with the help of the financing she is able to increase her inventory and obtain customers. Her plans are to continue to improve her home and add a room for each one of her children so that they do not have to be always together and have more privacy. She will achieve this little by little for everything is expensive and she cannot add on all at once.
