A loan of $800 helped to buy ingredients.


Gloria Margarita's story

Gloria sells food every day from her home-based store, where she prepares and offers various dishes to her customers. This is the primary source of income for her and her family and she does this together with her daughters, who help her to prepare the dishes and serve customers. She will use the money from this loan to buy ingredients (potatoes, rice, noodles, and other items) to have a full stock on hand. She is a hard working lady who has been doing this for years and is grateful to the institution for the support she has gotten.
