She has been working with the community bank for 2 years. Currently, she relies on her store as a source of income. After realizing how profitable her store had become, she decided to expand it. With this loan of 2,000 Soles, which will be repaid in 6 months, Gloria will purchase 1 sack of rice, 1 sack of sugar, 2 boxes of milk, 15 kg. of vegetable broth, etc. It is clear that Gloria receives the support of Manuela Ramos, and she feels content and happy with everything she has achieved in life.
