A loan of $575 helped to purchase necessary parts for repairing computers at her internet cafe.

Claudia Maria's story

Claudia has had to overcome many hardships in her life, but thanks to her strong work ethic and desire to get ahead, she has been able to meet those challenges and continue growing as a person. Claudia is a single mother of a 6-year-old son, and is the head of her family. She and her husband divorced some time ago, and therefore, she has to make a living to support her son. She learned computer maintenance from her ex-husband, and so she started up an internet café where she offers clients various services.

It is well known that Claudia is attentive to the needs of her customers, and that her café has a good atmosphere. She has a large client base and is very successful, since she is friendly and knows how to repair and maintain the computers and machines. Her technical knowledge allows her to keep her repair and maintenance costs down.

Claudia is requesting a loan that will allow her to purchase the necessary spare parts to repair a computer. She plans to utilize all her technical skills, but cannot complete successful repairs without the required replacement parts.

With the support from this loan she hopes to continue her business and her source of income for her family. Claudia’s dream is to grow and develop her business, and to one day buy her own house so that she can give her son a better quality of live and a better future.
