Gladys's story

Gladys is a very patient woman who lives in the Yarinacocha district of the Ucayali region. She is 43 years old and the mother of four children, two of whom are still in her care. She works at home as a tailor, with the support of her husband, who is a policeman. Gladys has been a member of the “Las Dinámicas” ("The Dynamic Ones") communal bank for three loan cycles. She invested her first loan, for 300 Peruvian soles, in purchasing fabric. Now she needs a loan of 800 soles, which she will invest in buying fabric, elastic strips and other materials necessary for her tailoring work. Gladys' goal is to continue developing her business by acquiring equipment such as a mini-industrial sewing machine, an embroidering machine, etc.
