Gloria Victoria is from Mexico. She has 2 children. She needs a loan of $425 to buy ingredients for the food she sells.
Gloria Victoria is a 58 year old widow who lives in Tetele in Oaxaca state of Mexico. Gloria Victoria has always liked to work and to support her family, and since her husband's death, she has worked hard to pay for her daughters' schooling. She places a table in her front yard to sell food. Monday through Friday, she sells chickens in the morning. She sells sausage on Tuesdays as well. She also sells Mexican snacks like tamales, stuffed chilis, pies, tostadas, bananas and chips during the weekend. Recently, sales have been low because the economy in her community is not doing well. However, she believes that God will not leave her to deal with these challenges alone.
With a loan from World Vision, Gloria Victoria will have the funds to invest in the purchase of ingredients like chilis, meat, chicken, corn, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, potatoes, cheese, tortillas, oil, cream, hot sauce and gas for her stove. Gloria Victoria hopes to grow her sales with this investment.
Increased sales are very important to Gloria Victoria because she only studied through junior high school. However, she wants her two daughters, Jaquelin (16, in high school) and Adilene (15, in junior high school), to earn degrees and experience a better quality of life than they do currently.
