Gloria Rosmira's story

Fifty-one-year-old Gloria is married and the mother of two young children. She has been a housewife and full-time mom. A few years ago, her home situation was not the best, so she worked for a while to help her husband with the expenses. During the time she was working, she decided to study bookbinding. When she learned how to do it completely, she left her job and decided to work independently from home. Currently, this business allows her to improve her family's finances and it has given her children the opportunity to get an education. In order to improve her sales, Gloria is asking for a loan she will invest in raw materials to make notebook covers so she can sell them during the upcoming school season, which causes an increase in sales of school supplies.
