Claudia Azucena has a business selling general merchandise. She started the business with her own funds because she was looking for a way to help with the household expenses. But over time she has been able to make progress with her business. She has been doing this work for more than 12 years, and it has been an important means of support for the two children in her care. The loan that she requests will be used to buy clothing, shoes, cosmetics, bed sheets and towels. She dreams of expanding her business and providing better service each day to her customers.
