Gladis Guadalupe
41-year-old Gladis lives with her 15-year-old son, who is her greatest pride and to whom Gladis devotes herself each day. She currently makes a living by preparing food in a market in the zone in which she lives. She gets up every morning with new expectations of life and with the goal of doing her best in her business. Her business is frequented because the food she sells is very delicious and she has built up a base of customers who prefer her business because her prices are reasonable. Gladis would like her business to grow a little more. For this reason, she is requesting a loan from Apoyo Integral so she can buy corn, chicken, meat, rice, tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, beans, etc. She is sure that if she has a greater variety of food, she will be able to sell more. She will continue to give her son an excellent quality of life, and she trusts that in the future he will see the effort that his mama makes daily.
