A loan of $1,025 helped to buy supplies for her crafts business.

Gladys's story

Sra. Gladys is a long-time customer and this is her third loan from the bank. She repaid her past loans on time and has demonstrated that she is a responsible borrower. She owns a business making and selling bunting. She makes the bunting from strings of nylon and sells it to buyers who use it to decorate their houses for Carnaval and other celebrations. Sra. Gladys and her husband work together to make the decorations. They don't have children now, but they would like have many children in the future. Her business is seasonal so she has to work especially hard this time of year to meet demand. Sra. Gladys will use this loan to buy rolls of nylon string for making bunting. She says that she is grateful to the bank for the support they provide.
