Claudia is 34 years old and is a widow, without children. She makes a living selling clothing and clothing accessories in a store that is located in a very busy area of the city. This is the second loan she has taken out through the institution. She will use this loan to buy merchandise, clothing and accessories, at wholesale to stock her store with appropriate styles for the season. The reason she has requested a loan is so that she can buy stock at lower prices (by purchasing at wholesale). She is facing challenges in her business as she is trying to grow it and increase her market. She will use the extra profits from her increased business to increase her working capital which will allow her to improve her profits and therefore improve the quality of life for her whole family. Claudia is a young entrepreneur with desires to rise above. She is thankful for the support that the institution has provided.
