A loan of $1,150 helped to buy food supplies in bulk.

Claudia's story

Señora Claudia is a long-time client of our institution. She has two children who attend school, and she works selling food at one of the minibus stops in the Sopocachi neighborhood. Currently, she is the only person who contributes to her household, as her partner doesn't have a steady income.

This loan will be used to make bulk purchases of rice, noodles, potatoes, and oil, as this is cheaper than buying by the pound. With the money she saves, she is thinking about renting a store for her business and being able to serve dinner and special dishes. In this way she could increase her income and quality of life for herself and her family.
