Gladys's story

Gladys is separated, has three children and has her own house in the city of El Alto. She only studied up to primary level at school. She survives selling food to employees of a plastics factory. She needs a loan in order to increase her available capital. She will then be able to buy greater quantities of rice, noodles, oil, etc., thereby meeting the increasing demand for her her product. Her dream is to have a fully equipped restaurant. This is the first time that she has turned to Kiva.
