At age 60, Gloria Tabile lives simply with her husband in the Philippines. They have two children together who are both grown with their own families. Her husband earns a small income to purchase food and pay for daily needs while Gloria owns and operates a convenience store to support her and her husband's living expenses. Despite her hard work, Gloria struggled to grow her business due to lack of capital and a low income. She found the solution to her financial problems when she was introduced to Opportunity International. Gloria received a loan and financial training to better run her convenience store. She plans to use her loan to expand her product selection with the hope of attracting additional customers, and ultimately increasing her sales. In the long run, Gloria wants to help other people start their own small businesses.
