Gladis Ubel's story

Gladis is a very entrepreneurial person who lives with her husband and three children in the southern part of Honduras. Her business is a snack shop and a cosmetics store.

Gladis needs this loan to buy cosmetics like lotions and beauty creams, and cookies, candies, churros (a fried snack), etc. With the loan, she hopes that her sales will increase at her store because she will have more products and merchandise to offer her customers when they visit each day. Thus, she will meet her customers' needs and with her income she will improve her own family's lifestyle.

Gladis hopes that in the next few years her business will continue to grow and will become a large and well-known grocery store in her neighborhood so that she can give her children the schooling they need to become good people and have more opportunities.
