Gladis's story

Gladis is a 49-year old woman who is married and has three children, with whom she lives in her own house. Gladis works selling food. Every night she takes out tables and chairs and offers her delicious dishes and refreshing beverages made with natural fruits. She has been doing this for three years now and counts with the help of her children. She enjoys her job because it gives her time for other tasks and provides her with good income and a financial backup to face unexpected situations. She would like to have a restaurant with more tables and chairs to serve more people. She is requesting a loan of 1,000 PEN and is grateful for the financial support. She will use the requested amount to buy ingredients and inputs, such as rice, chicken, oil, olives and fruits, as well as plates and other utensils to better serve her clients. She commits to repay as scheduled.
