A loan of $650 helped to buy staple products.


Gladys's story

Gladys, 59, is single and has three children who depend on her. She lives in her own house in the community of Tular, Nacaome, Valle, in the south of Honduras.

She has sold used clothing and groceries for ten years. Her customers are her friends and people who visit her business on a daily basis. Gladys is a hardworking woman who wants to get ahead. She's an example in her community of work and family devotion.

Gladys is requesting the loan to buy staple products: beans, rice, corn, dairy products, milk, bread, coffee, and other basic food items. With the support of this loan she plans to improve her business and better serve her customers. This is the fourth loan she has requested and she's very happy to keep on working with Prisma and Kiva.

Her dream is to improve her business and her house.
