Clara Lourdes's story

Clara, twenty-nine, started out ten years ago with a small loan from her family. She opened her business, which, thank God, has been growing. She starts work every day at 6 in the morning and stops at night. Her one difficulty is crime; it's very dangerous in the area where she works. Clara is a single mother, and with her own effort is succeeding with her two children, aged eight and five, who are in public school. Her goal is to be able to complete construction on her house and for her kids to be able to complete their education.
