Gloria's story

Gloria, 32, is single and responsible for her 6-year-old son Jordi. She is a devoted mother, who has shown she is capable of meeting a variety of life's challenges. She lives in a well-built, rented house. She wanted to study for a profession, but the birth of her son Jordi put that dream on hold. She decided to pursue other means to get ahead. Ten years ago, at her parent's suggestion, she started selling groceries and vegetables as a street vendor. Later, she rented a space in a new local market, which resulted in higher income. She empathizes with her customers, and she now is a retail supplier to several local and popular restaurants, which is a good business opportunity that helps her family financially. She has come to the institution to get a working capital loan to restock basic items. Her long-term goals are to buy land and later build a house. She is applying for a loan of 3,000 nuevos soles to buy staples such as rice, sugar, and vegetables to restock her store with the most popular items.
