A loan of $425 helped to buy bookbinding supplies and a bookshelf.


Gloria Rosmira's story

Gloria worked for many years at a business, which closed not long ago. She has been unemployed since. She took bookbinding classes and started a business from home, offering book and manuscript binding and photocopying services. Her sister helps her get new customers. The income from this business is enough to support Gloria and her two children, ages 17 and 14.

In order to complete several orders, Gloria needs supplies such as spiral binding, laminated covers and a bookshelf to organize her work. Gloria's dream is to have a separate store location for her business and to be able to provide her children with a good education.
