Claudia Janeth's story

Claudia Janeth is forty-two years old and sells clothing and jicaro (gourd) seeds for a living. She has made her living this way for more than thirteen years, since she is always thinking about what her family needs. She has a seven-year old son to support. Her husband did not have stable work, so she decided to help her family get by in spite of the difficulties she faces like traveling long distances to sell her products to her customers. The loan she is taking out is to buy raw materials needed to increase her inventory.
