Gladis's story

Gladis Marina, 60, is married and lives with her two grandchildren and her mother. For 16 years she has been running a grocery store in the community of San Lorenzo in southern Honduras.

Gladis sells everything related to the family basket, including ready meals, fresh produce, soups, tortillas, water in a bag, etc. She is a hard-working, enterprising woman who is determined to get ahead.

Gladis sells a bit of everything and thanks to her work she has been able to support her children. She is requesting a loan to buy fresh produce, water, coffee, bread, corn, sugar, shortening, flour, eggs, 12 chickens and two pigs. The loan will help improve her income so she can get ahead.

Gladis is very grateful for the new loan from Prisma. Her goal is to improve her business.
