Claudia Guadalupe's story

Claudia is a humble vender in the Oriental market. She lives in the municipality of Ticuantepe with her husband and children. Her husband works in a private business to be able to contribute to the household expenses. The plans they have for the future are to improve their living conditions. Claudia needs your support so that she will be able to build a bedroom for her children; currently the whole family sleeps in the same room and they don't have any privacy. With the profit she makes from selling fruits and vegetables she has succeeded in covering some costs. Their children are studying so that they are raised well and behave. The loan she is requesting is to buy cinder blocks, cement, sand, gravel, boards and rod iron, as well as other things.
