Gloria Matilde's story

Gloria Matilde F. M. is 65 years old and lives in Ilopango, in the San Salvador department of El Salvador. She lives with her sister and young niece. Gloria is a very responsible and hardworking person. Without having a family of her own, she has worked very hard to get ahead. She owns a store selling foods such as bread and sweets, as well as toiletries such as soap and shampoo. She also sells vegetables outside her house. Gloria is requesting a loan for two uses: half will go towards stocking her store, and the other half for buying more corn and vegetables so she will be able to server her clients better. In this way, she will be able to improve her sales, which is her priority since this will enable her to live a better life.
