A loan of $1,000 helped to buy rice, beans, cooking oil, sugar, and various other products for her business.


Gloria Isabel's story

‘Querer es poder’ [where there is a will there is a way]. They are three short words that characterize Gloria. Upon completing high school, various causes stopped her from entering the university. One of these was the lack of financial resources. Nevertheless, she did not give up. She looked for a way to progress. At 26 years of age, she owns a grocery store. It has been growing little by little for four years. She works with care and dedication given that this is her main source of income. Gloria is requesting a second loan. She plans on using the loan to increase her production capital. She needs to buy rice, beans, cooking oil, sugar, and various other products for her business. She is very grateful for the first loan. She increased her number of customers and her income. She struggles for her mother, who she wishes to provide with better living conditions. One of her goals is to expand the business and at the same time set up butane gas sales.
