Claudia Cecilia's story

Claudia is a person who has always been known for being very hard-working, and always wanting to offer a good quality of life to her husband and her 6-year-old son. Because the income generated by her husband were not sufficient to cover all of their household's expenses, Claudia decided to start a business, without much capital, making clothing. With this business, she has been able to contribute economically to her household income. Thanks to this business, her family has been able to enjoy a better quality of life, and her son has been able to gain access to a higher quality education. The main advantages presented by Claudia are the good service she offers her customers and the good quality of her products; however, her main difficulty is the lack of capital to allow her to work in her business with better conditions. For this reason, she is seeking a loan to provide the opportunity to buy supplies and materials for her business, and to perform maintenance on one of her sewing machines.

Claudia hopes that in this way her business will keep moving forward, and she can keep offering her customers good quality in her products. In addition, Claudia hopes that with better sales, her work can offer her the opportunity to fulfill her dream to have a house of her own, where she can live better together with her husband and her son.
