Gloria Elena's story

Gloria’s a very hardworking person who has gotten ahead despite the great adversities life has presented her. She currently works as a hired field hand but feels that she’s not paid enough to cover all her household expenses where she lives with her six-year-old son. She’s always wanted to have her own vegetable crops but has never had sufficient capital to do so and this dream is constantly being postponed. Now that she has the opportunity, Gloria is looking for financing to buy supplies like seeds, irrigation supplies, manure and insecticide to start her own vegetable crop.

Her dream is to have her own business and to move it forward to be able to offer better quality of life for her son and better economic opportunities for progress. In addition, she dreams in future with providing her won with a better quality education that will make it possible for him to progress.
