Gladith's story

Gladith belongs to the credit group “In the Mean Time (The Queens)”. She lives in the region and province of San Martin district of Tarapoto. She is dedicated to the sale of refreshments and snacks. The business is located in her home. She began this business because she needed to generate more income to compensate for the increasing needs of her children, and above all their schooling.

With this loan, which she will repay in 4 monthly installments, she will buy bottled water, a variety of sodas, toiletries, and eggs, all of which are in high demand from her clients.

Gladith is 56 and lives with her husband and children. She is a very responsible and resilient woman with the motivation to help herself and her children ahead. In the future she would like to open an actual store selling non-perishables.
