Gloria Nelly's story

Ms. Gloria is married and has two children. Her husband works in a mine, and for this reason he does not live with with them but only visits on occasion. She is a fundamental pillar in her family because it is her responsibility to raise their children.

She dedicates herself to the sale of chicken in the Rodríguez Market, a well-known market in the city of La Paz. She begins her day at 5:30 AM, the time at which the chicken is delivered to be sold that day. She sometimes continues working until 8:00 at night in order to sell a little more and thus increase her profits.

She is asking for a loan in order to make some renovations on her sales stall, to perform maintenance on some of her work instruments, and to buy merchandise to sell. This way, she will be able to increase her income and improve her family's quality of life.
