A loan of $875 helped to stock her store.


Gloria's story

Gloria is 35 years old and single. She used to sell coconuts and corn on foot at one of the largest markets in the central zone. In 1995 she was able to use her savings to open a small store within her home. Now she manages her small store and has steady customers. Most of her neighbors buy from her. Gloria is characterized as one who puts forth a lot of effort and this is how she obtained everything she has. One of her dreams is to have a bit larger store where she can have more merchandise and can attract more customers. She is asking for this loan in order to stock her store with food, drinks, noodles, and various other items in order to satisfy her customer demand.
