Gladis is from the city of Santaní. She has a clothing and shoe business in the Mercado Municipal neighborhood. She defines herself as a very enterprising, hard-working, and creative woman. She lived abroad for a long time. She brought capital from abroad, and she used it to open the stall where she works.

She states that she will continue working hard in order to be able to continue growing and expanding her business. She says that everything she does is to help her family. She wishes to give them the best so that they do not experience any type of privation.

One of her goals is to have a large store where she could attract more customers, which would increase her income. Her objective is to maintain this business and be able to pay for her expenses. She wishes to have all of the basic needs items so that her customers find everything at her place.

She is requesting the loan to buy garments that she will later sell. She hopes for the loan because getting it will be very useful to her.
