A loan helped to buy cheese, cream, sausages, chicken, and other products to sell at her store, as well as to acquire three pigs to fatten and sell.


Gloria Ester's story

Gloria studied through the ninth grade. She is married and her husband is a livestock farmer. They have four children.

Gloria has a small store where she has been selling basic products for the past five years. She learned this trade from her brother-in-law. The store is located at her house and she manages it from 6:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. In addition, she raises pigs to sell.

Gloria will use this loan to buy cheese, cream, sausages, chicken, and other products to sell at her store. In addition, she will buy three pigs to fatten and eventually resell.

Her greatest wish is to see her children become professionals.
