Gloria Angelica's story

Gloria Angélica is 57 years old and lives in an urban area near the mountainous area of the country. She lives with her husband Don José who is employed and earns money for household expenses.

Gloria, in order to contribute to the household and to improve their quality of life, decided more than 4 years ago to sell natural and popular medicine in the neighborhood towns close to where she lives. She is offered a discount in drugstores, and buys at low prices which allows her to sell at affordable prices to her customers which they appreciate and she makes a profit with which she can buy food for the home.

Gloria is an optimistic woman and wants on this occasion to reinvest in her business buying healing remedies which she has not been able to as her clients ask for them, such as ointments for muscle pain, deworming medication, healing creams, and treatments for urinary tract infections and bronchitis.

She says that with the support of INTEGRAL, and thanks to these little whims that come increasingly to her, her yearned for big dream of improving the quality of life for her family changes from a dream to fact.
