Claudia Isela's story


Claudia Isela R. M., 30, lives in Cojutepeque, Cuscatlán department. She lives with both her parents and her one-year-old son, who is her greatest incentive to succeed in life.

Claudia is a fruit vendor; she has a stand in front of the route 113 bus stop; a very busy site that has much foot traffic all day. She is a cheerful and enterprising woman that starts her work day at 6am and goes until 5pm, a long work day that provides a roof over her head, food and everything her young son needs. He depends completely on her because Claudia is a single mother that must work twice as hard to get ahead.

She is asking for funding to buy fruits and vegetables so that she will have a greater amount of product to offer her customers thus increasing her sales.
