A loan of $775 helped to buy fruits and vegetables to sell.

Gladis's story

Gladis is from the city of Villarrica. She is 35 years old, and is a single mother. She lives in her own home, and has one child. She has a business selling seasonal fruits and vegetables in an itinerant manner. She makes deliveries to homes, house by house, because she has an established customer base.

She has been covering the educational expenses for her child with a lot of effort, by selling tomatoes, lettuce, onions and fruit. She comments that her work requires a lot of sacrifice, because it's not easy to go out into the streets to sell. Her goal is to have her son become a good and well-educated person, so that he will not have to suffer the hardships that she experienced.

She approached the Fundación Paraguaya to ask for a small loan that will help her to buy seasonal fruits and vegetables to sell. She is grateful to the Fundación and to Kiva for this great assistance that they are providing, as this loan is going to be a big help to her.
