Glenda Gissella's story

Glenda lives in Paraíso with her parents and her child. Glenda is 22 years old, and due to life’s circumstances, she is a single mother. It is this event that fortified her character and drove her to look for a way to earn money.

Glenda sells women’s beauty products like make-up, perfume, jewelry, eye shadow, and lipsticks, etc. She also sells products for men and children. She promotes and sells her products by herself every day because she visits her customers to take their orders. This business gives her good profits, and thanks to that she has been able to get ahead with her child.

Glenda hopes to be able to get the loan. She will use the loan to buy merchandise to sell. She will do this because she wishes to have greater production. In the coming months her child will go to school, and her expenses will increase. Her goal for the future is to expand the business and to become a director of one of the brands that she sells.
