Gloria Helena's story

Gloria is 42 years old, head of the family, and has 3 young children. Her life has been marked by abuse suffered at the hands of her husband, which is the reason she decided to leave, but confesses it was a very critical situation because she did not support their home. Gloria got up the nerve and made the decision to leave with their children. She began selling tanks of gas with money her mother gave her.

At present she continues the same job as their sole economic source, since she has failed to obtain employment due to her lack of education. Her greatest desire is that her economic situation will improve and she will be able to give her children a good education and they will not lack any basic needs.

She is requesting this loan in order to buy tanks of gas and merchandise to sell in this year-end season. This will increase her income and she hopes she will be able to buy her children school supplies for next year.
