Gladys's story

Gladys is a member of the Manantial [Fountain Spring] communal bank. She is 48 years old and has a grocery shop, and on Saturdays she sells fish. Gladys has been a member of Finca Perú for 12 years. She is married and the mother of three children.

Gladys began her business with a small amount of capital and feels great now because her business has grown. Little by little she has been able to acquire a refrigerator, her television set, and provide an education for her children. She values the trainings which are given because she learns a lot in them, as for example, how to provide an education for her children. The ease with which she receives the loans gave her the opportunity to have a business. The loan she is requesting now will be invested in the purchase of milk, pasta and other products for her business.
