Claudia Oristela's story

Claudia is 29 years old and lives in the southern zone of Honduras. Along with her lives her small daughter and her husband who supports her in her work and in all of her commitments. Claudia has been working in the community where she lives for the past 4 years. She does her business traveling on foot, since she distributes her products in various villages and towns, as well as in her own community. Claudia needs the loan to purchase: sandals, pants, shirts, T-shirts, creams, swimsuits, deodorants, etc. to satisfy the demand of each of her customers. The expected impact of the loan is that her sales will increase, since she will purchase a variety of products to complete each of the orders that her customers make every week. Claudia's future plans are to grow her business and open a store to generate good income in order to have a better quality of life for her and her family. Choluteca, Honduras - July 2012.
