Claudia's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped a women-owned small business keep her restaurant open after being closed for 61 days due to COVID-19.

Claudia's story

I am a proud mom of 5 children. Ruben 25, Sophia 12, Santiago 7, Alonso 7, and Pablo 5 years old. I am from Peru and I moved to the United States 19 years ago as a single mother with Ruben who was 6 years old. I have lived in Miami, FL since then. While I was working full time, I enrolled in night school to properly learn the English language; then I pursued a bachelor’s degree in International Business at the age of 27 and graduated with Honors (Summa Cum Laude) at the Florida International University in 2011 at the age of 34 (studying part-time at nights). I have also been a children entertainer since I was 6 years old, so I worked as a clown for several years in Miami with my company Party Time Clowns, Corp. I met my husband Sergio 16 years ago in Miami (he is from Spain) and we are blessed to have a wonderful and healthy family.
