Nueva Esperanza Group's story

Gladis is 57 years old and a member of the “Nueva Esperanza” ["New Hope"] communal bank. She is married and has four grown children. She is also in charge of a 12 year-old grandson who is like her own son.

Gladis sells breakfasts in an ambulatory manner, and she also prepares sweets for the various holidays. She prepares sweets like chocolates, mazamorra [corn pudding], gelatin, and nougat. With the income from her small business, she helps cover her family's household expenses and helps send her youngest son to school. She is requesting this loan through EDAPROSPO in order to buy a juicer and an orange peeler so that she can sell orange juice during the summer.
