In the photo you can see some of the 'antojitos' (Mexican snacks) that she sells. She has been in her business for 10 years and her customers say that they buy their snacks from Claudia because they are maD. with natural ingredients and she is always ready to please them with whatever they would like to eat.

Claudia is 40 years old and studied at elementary school level. However, this didn't stop her getting ahead. She has two children: one girl and one boy. She plans to use her loan to continue investing in her business and increasing her customers. She also plans to start selling fast food such as soups and stews.
