Claudia started her business making beautiful flower arrangements and selling them from a street cart two years ago, after hearing about Grameen America from a friend. At that time, she worked in a store that required her to put in long hours yet paid her barely enough to support her family. Now, she has created a profitable business and discovered a profession that she truly enjoys.

Claudia is a natural saleswoman who exudes friendliness and humor, so it’s not surprising that her favorite part of the job is getting to meet and converse with new people throughout the day. Having paid off her first two Grameen America loans, Claudia is seeking a third loan of $2,000 to purchase flowers and other equipment that she needs to grow her business. She hopes to one day apply her skills to opening a neighborhood flower shop. When Claudia isn’t hard at work expanding her business, she likes to relax at home and spend time with her son. Her dream for him is that he studies hard and builds a successful career – and Claudia is doing an incredible job of leading him by example.
