A loan of $375 helped to buy fabric remnants that she can sell in bulk.

Gladis Helena's story

Gladis is a woman who is experienced in different fields. Fortunately, she is very good at each one of them.

During the time she lived in her birthplace of Amaga, Colombia, Gladis had a business of preparing and selling corn arepas (flatbread that is served with condiments or used to make sandwiches). She experienced a great deal of success.

Gladis now has a business of selling fabric remnants. She already has a space in her house that is used as a grocery store, but she also uses it to keep all of her merchandise which she then sells in bulk to different sewing workshops. Gladis seeks a loan so that she can increase her inventory of merchandise. This would result in more profits that she could earn, which would enable her to make her purchases with cash.
