Gladis's story

Gladis is a person of many virtues such as love, honest work, and responsibility. She lives in the city of Ambato together with her husband. She describes herself as a humble, caring, and hardworking woman. Gladis has been manufacturing and selling industrial footwear for over 20 years. This work has given Gladis great satisfaction such as raising her children and providing them with an education. The loan that Gladis is requesting from FODEMI is for the purchase of raw materials for footwear manufacturing and its subsequent sale to the city's main storehouses. This loan will help Gladir to improve her supply, to offer quality products, and to meet the current demand.

Gladis' dreams are to continue working, to be one of the main industrial footwear distributors in the entire country, and to continue financially supporting her family to cover household needs.
