A loan of $1,150 helped to buy watch parts and accessories as she is running low.


Gloria Cecilia's story

Gloria Cecilia has been running her business selling, repairing and maintaining watches for 14 years. This has allowed her to contribute financially to her household so that her husband and her two children, who are 10 and 19 years old, can enjoy a better quality of life. Her business used to be located in rented premises. When the landlords asked for the premises back she had no other alternative but to set up her business in the street and re-establish herself with her customers so that she could make progress. Gloria Cecilia's family have always suffered financial difficulties but, thanks to the efforts she puts into her business, she has often been able to mitigate the problems and enjoy good financial stability. She works hard every day so that her family can enjoy a better quality of life. As some of the parts she uses in mending watches have been running out, Gloria is looking for a loan that will allow her to buy more watch parts and accessories so that she can continue providing a watch repair and maintenance service. This will mean her customers will be able to continue receiving a good service and her sales will increase considerably. As a result, she will make better income for her household and her family will enjoy better financial stability. Her biggest dream is to re-locate her business into proper premises so that she can offer her products for sale more comfortably.
