Gloria's story

Gloria operates a Bazaar and stationery store out of her home where she sells various items and school supplies. Gloria started her business with a loan for 200 dollars, which she used to buy a display case. Initially she only sold notebooks. Now she also sells gifts and other stationery. Gloria will use this loan to invest in additional merchandise at volume wholesale prices to increase her profits. She is sure that this loan will help her business grow. Gloria is 58 years old and lives with two nephews who are still in school. She depends on this business to support her family. She is confident that this loan will provide the financial security her family needs and to be able to improve the quality of their home.
