Gs Gracias A Dios Group's story

Gladis is 58 years old. She is a widow and lives with her grandchildren and two single children. She is a very humble person who is committed to her business. She comes from Tular, Nacaome, in the south of Honduras. She lives in a very humble home and works every day selling new and used clothing. She also sells cosmetics.

Gladis is the leader of the 'Gracias a Dios' (Thanks to God) solidarity group. She is very happy to support her fellow group members.

Gladis is requesting 5,000 lempiras to buy shirts, trousers, underwear and skirts. She hopes that the loan will enable her to make progress and continue working hard in her business in order to support her family.

Gladis' dream is to improve her home and further expand her business.

Susana and Franklin work full time in their businesses which are their source of income.
