A loan of $375 helped to buy livestock.


Gladys Estella's story

Gladys is 42 years old and the single mother of one daughter. She raises flowers and works as a supervisor and also raises livestock; she has various heads of livestock with which she complements her income to support the household. Her brother helps her care for the livestock, which is located on a farm where her parents live. Gladys is a hardworking, active, woman who pushes herself and is always looking for opportunities that allow her to get ahead with her daughter. She was motivated to request a loan in order to invest in livestock (steers) so she can continue with her business and be able to increase her resources. She wants to be able to provide her daughter with an excellent university education and watch her develop a professional career. She will also have the chance to save up to buy a home of her own in the interim and enjoy a better quality of life and wellbeing with her daughter.
