Claudia Ines's story

Claudia is a young 26-year old woman. She is married and has a 3-year old son and a 4-month old daughter. Her business is selling toys. She is a good mother, independent and very supportive. Her business is located in the "Chasquipampa" area, which is a residential area south of the city.

Claudia is dark-skinned, with long black hair and a thin physique. Her native language is Aymará and she speaks Spanish. She shares her life with her husband who works in transport and with her children who are not yet school age. They live in a rented house, built of brick and cement and which has all of the basic services.

Her business is selling toys, a job that she has done since she was a little girl and used to help her mother. "I worked with my mother until I was an adult and then I became independent..." she says. The advantage of her business is that time is at her disposal. There are few disadvantages.

Her dream is to build her house. She wants to buy toys at wholesale prices. This is the 1st loan with the institution in the 3 years that she has been doing this job. For those reasons, Claudia is asking for a loan to buy toys at wholesale prices to renovate her business.
