A loan of $1,200 helped to buy rice, oil, meat and sandwiches for her business.

Claudia Carolina's story

Claudia, who lives with her 5 year old daughter, sells food. She has a stall in the town market where she works every weekday preparing different dishes for her customers.

Currently she needs a loan to buy rice, oil, meat and sandwiches. These products will help her to keep up a good selection for preparing her daily menus and meeting the demands of her customers.

Her goal is to work for her daughter and to give her everything she needs for a better future.
