Gladys's story

Gladys, 50 years old, is a single mother and she lives with her four children in her own home. The business that Gladys has is selling regional food during evening hours but she also prepares different dishes to sell during lunchtime. She offers friendly service to her customers and this attitude added to her tasty dishes has permitted her to obtain high approval and demand. She has been in business for 12 years with the help of her daughter. She likes her business and says that she likes to cook, and also she likes the financial return that she obtains from her sales which have permitted her to pay bills and basic household expenses.

At this time she is asking for 1500 soles and is happy with the financial help that she receives in order to grow with her businesses. She will use the requested amount to buy all the ingredients she uses in the preparation of her dishes such as meat, bananas, oil, condiments, rice and others.
