A loan of $800 helped to buy perfumes, accessories and creams.

Gloria Magdalena's story

Gloria was born in Guayaquil, and she is 35 years old. She started her business 8 years ago (in 2005). She was working for a company that sold household appliances, but with a loan from a relative, she decided to start up her own business selling Yanbal products. The business gradually grew, and now she gets prizes for her sales.

Gloria starts to work at 6 in the morning. She goes to take her children to school, and then starts travelling around to her customers to sell the products that are in demand.

She doesn't have any problems with her business, and with the help of God, she is making progress each day. She is single and has 2 children aged 6 and 2, one of whom is attending public school.

With this loan, she wants to buy perfumes, accessories, and creams so that she can have a greater variety of products for her customers. Her dream, or rather the goal she wants to accomplish, is to sell her merchandise in other, more distant, places.
