Amparo Gladys's story

After working many years as a housemaid, Amparo decided five years ago to start her own business to be able to be closer to her home and take care of her five children. It was then that a friend taught her to make a great variety of food and she began to offer food service to her neighbors, family members and friends. Currently, her business keeps growing and, thanks to the possibility to have her own business in her house, she can offer her five children a better quality of life being their caregiver. Additionally, the income for the home has increased from the potential to contribute a greater quantity along with her husband to pay the bills. Thanks to her customers requesting that she sell fast food, Amparao is looking for a loan to buy a fast food cart with which she can prepare food and satisfy her customers' needs. Her greatest dream is that this business keeps growing so that her children and her husband can enjoy better income in the house and a better quality of life. Amparo's hope is that her business allows her to provide for her five children the access to a good quality education and it is for this that she works so hard every day.
