Gladys Del Rocio's story

Gladys is 42 years old, lives in a Peruvian zone in the Paraíso de Guayaquil (Guayaquil Paradise), known for its terrain and mointains. She has a small store in the front section of her home.

She started her business because in the area she lives in there are no stores for people to go to. In the beginning she only had a display cabinet and rice to sell. Little by little she stocked her store. Now she works from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day.

With the loan she wants to buy display cabinets and rice for her business. In the future she wants her home to be well built and also have a well known store.
