Gladis's story

Gladis, age 38, lives with her partner and has three children. She is a member of the communal bank “LAS TRIUNFADORAS”'; the bank is located in the district of Andahuaylillas of the Quispicanchis province which is part of the Cusco department. Gladis divides her time between her daily activities with the business of selling jora, which is a corn-based product used for a preparation of chicha (a traditional corn-based drink). She also works in a beauty salon. By means of these activities, Gladis is able to provide for her children. She would like to improve both her beauty salon business and her jora sales. Gladis is seeking a loan in order to be able to purchase jora at wholesale prices. She is happy about the loan and is committed to repaying it in a timely manner.
