This is how she acquired all the fixtures to open her store and she equipped it with the necessary infrastructure for this type of business. Her sales are good and she stocks a wiD. variety of quality items. Her husband too is an independent merchant of miscellaneous merchandise that he sells to both regular and occasional customers.

This is her first loan with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo and she plans to use it to buy merchandise like: stationery items, cosmetics, accessories and in general, miscellaneous articles to be stocked and ready for Father’s Day which is a time when sales increase because customers recognize that they will find what they need at good prices in Claudia’s store.

Her dream is to strengthen the wellbeing of her family which is composed of her husband and two children who are 6 and 19 years of age. She dreams with helping them to build a successful future and this is precisely the motivation behind her work in partnership with her husband.
