Gladys Amparo's story

Gladys is 34 years old. She feels she is a strict, responsible person with a great desire to exceed herself personally and in her family. Gladys lives with her husband and their three children in the city of Ibarra.

Gladys makes a living raising animals such as pigs and guinea pigs. She has carried out this activity for three years. She started with a mothering sow and now has five. Gladys hopes to continue getting ahead and improving the breed of her pigs. She needs a loan in order to invest in buying 10 pink pig piglets and also to buy animal feed for them. This investment will allow her to improve her sales and income which will help her to improve her family's quality of life.

Gladys dreams of having a large pig farm and becoming a distributor to large companies and so improve her children's quality of life and give them a good education.
