Gladis Clementina's story

Gladis Clementina is married and 40 years old. She did not have the opportunity to study. She has 5 children, 3 of which are studying. She works as a merchant, selling traditional clothing. She started this business on her own initiative, due to the need to contribute to the family income. She has 8 years of experience, and she can count on the support of her husband, who works as a mason.

She is requesting a loan which she will use to buy blouses, skirts, aprons, bodices, and other items necessary for her sales. She hopes to expand her business, and in the future to have a shop where she can sell traditional clothing and continue supporting her family, especially her children.
