Gladis Ubel's story

Señora Gladis makes her living with a small business selling churros (a doughnut-like treat), bread and candies. She has been running the business out of her home, located in the city of Choluteca, for more than 5 years. She also sells beauty products, like lotions, treatments, make-up and other items, to increase her income. Thanks to the profits she has earned, she and her two children, who attend the local school, have been able to get ahead. Señora Gladis is requesting a loan of L. 8,000.00 (USD $425) to invest in the purchase of churros, candies, bread and beauty products.
