A loan of $850 helped a vitrine.

Gladys Mercedes's story

Gladys is 52 years old. She lives in Manta, Ecuador. She began selling stationary products a long time ago, but when she saw that sales were going down, she decided to make snacks, which has been a good business. She works in the afternoons, by herself. She is married and has children, but they are grown. The difficulty she has is the lack of security in the neighborhood. She wishes very much to grow her business in the future. With the loan she will buy a vitrine and cooking ingredients.
