Claudia Virginia
Claudia, 31 years of age, is a young entrepreneurial single mother of a 3-year old daughter. She rents a space locally where she sells all types of lingerie, costume jewelry, purses and various accessories.

She started this business thanks to financial support from her father, who was in tapestry making. She started selling to friends, companions and local neighbors. Later, she was encouraged, and rented her own locale for the business. She currently has a prosperous enterprise.

She turns to the Fundación Paraguaya to access a small amount of loan assistance to buy lingerie and purses. She thanks Fundación Paraguaya for their support, and hopes to count on Kiva’s help.
