A loan of $350 helped to buy supplies for her crafts business.

Claudia Milena's story

Claudia Milena has always had a talent for making accessories, a talent that she's turned to earning an extra income for her family. She started making accessories years before starting her business, using whatever was at hand, and later, when she was looking for a way to contribute to the family income, selling what she made to her customers. Claudia Milena is married and has 2 children, children she works hard to provide for.

Claudia Milena needs supplies to fill an order that she's received from one of her customers. However, she doesn't have enough money to buy the supplies--stones, glue, etc.--she needs so she's applying for this loan.

Claudia Milena hopes that her sales will continue to increase so that she can earn more to help her family. She wants her children to have a better quality of life and get the best possible education.
