A loan of $1,000 helped for sweets, telephones, phone charging cards.


Gladys Auxiliadora's story

Gladys, 53, has a telephone booth business. She lives in an area noted for the large number of informal merchants there called Guasmo.

Due to the lack of employment opportunities she started the phone booth business to help meet family expenses. She has been working with the booths since then and is open from 8am until 9pm. She offers local, cellular and some international calls.

She will use the loan to buy telephones and call cards for her business. In the future she’d like to have a Internet café in order to have more income for her family.
