Gladis's story

Gladis is 54 years old. She is married to Amancio. She lives in her own house, which she built with the help of her husband, with her 4 children and her daughter-in-law.

Gladis sells general groceries. For this, she established a small store in her home where every day starting very early she waits on all her customers in a friendly and cordial way. The majority of them are her neighbors, with whom she has had a relationship of friendship and respect for the 10 years her store has been open. She likes her business selling groceries and drinks since it lets her be at home during the day and participate in the school activities of her younger children, and also because the income she obtains helps her cover basic household expenses. This is her 4th loan with Kiva, so she hopes for your cooperation in order to continue with her goals and to keep growing every day.

With the amount requested of 1500 nuevos soles, she will buy general groceries such as rice, sugar, milk, pasta, sweets, bottled soda, and bottled drinks at low prices in order to continue developing her business.
