A loan of $525 helped to buy ingredients for making food.


Gladys María Del Socorro's story

For 25 years, Gladys has sold fast food in Giradota, a town in the department of Antioquia, but she still has faced difficulties due to the location of her stall. She is a hardworking woman who dreams every day of improving her quality of life. She works Monday to Saturday with the purpose of growing her business and in the future being able to have her own restaurant where she can generate more income as well as generating jobs.

For this reason Gladys Maria asks for a loan with which, little by little, she will begin to build her dream. She knows that to increase her profits she will have to increase her production, so she needs ingredients to make food. She doesn't have the capital that will help her not only to improve her quality of life but also take a step towards her dream.
