A loan of $375 helped to buy merchandise for her business selling beers and fizzy drinks.


Gladys Ufelia's story

Gladys is an enterprising woman. She is 56 years old, married and lives in the Imperial district of Peru with her family.

Gladys is a plucky woman and has always worked in order to help her children to prosper, and to offer them a good up-bringing and better future. For over six years, Gladys has worked selling fizzy drinks and beer. The business is going very well because Gladys is very persevering, responsible and enthusiastic in her work.

Gladys is grateful to Kiva lenders because, with their support, she will be able to buy merchandise for her business selling beers and fizzy drinks. She will then have higher sales and profits. Then, with a a lot of effort and dedication, Gladys will continue working in order to achieve her dream of having her own little grocery store.
