Claudia
View original language description ↓
Claudia needed her own income in order to pay for the studies and expenses of her house, as she didn’t have work and the father of her children had abandoned them without giving any explanation. However, thanks to the strength her children give her, she started a business and two years ago she began to sell exercise books and pens in the entrance of a primary school and found someone who lent her money in order to establish her business. But this didn’t work out well, as the person who lent the money charged very high interest rates, and all that she earned selling products she had to repay to this person.


As a result, Claudia is asking for a credit of US $925 to be repaid in a six month period. This money will be used to expand the business and stock merchandise which you already find near a primary school and people are beginning to arrive to buy things. With your help Claudia will be able to provide the basic necessities of life to her sons, so they can survive without the need of their irresponsible father.


Translated from the Spanish by Katy Long, Kiva Volunteer


Claudia necesitaba de un ingreso propio para poder costear los estudios y los gastos de la casa ya que no tenia trabajo y el papa de sus hijos los abandonó sin dar una explicación. Sin embargo la fuerza que le dan sus hijos, la hizo comenzar un negocio y fue hace 2 años que empezó vendiendo sólo cuadernos y lápices en la entrada de una primaria y consiguió quién le prestara para poner su negocio pero no le fue bien con la persona que le prestó porque le cobraba intereses muy altos, y lo que ganaba vendiendo sus productos se le iban en pagarle a la persona.


Por eso Claudia está solicitando un crédito de US $925 para pagarlos en un plazo de 6 meses y este dinero le servirá para ampliar su negocio y surtir de mercancía ya que se encuentra cerca de una primaria y la gente comienza a llegar para comprarle cosas, Con tu ayuda Claudia podrá brindarles una vida con lo elemental para sobrevivir a sus hijos sin la necesidad de su padre irresponsible.
