Claudia's story

Claudia is a widow, 45 years old, and the mother of five children, from 7 to 25 years old. Among the children, four are in school. Claudia has had a restaurant for four years now in which she sells not only food but drinks. Since her husband has died, she uses the revenues from this business to raise her children and feed them.

With this loan, she would like to buy some fish, 3 cases of drinks, and some chairs to improve her business' accommodations and to make her customers happy. Her ambition for her family is to send her oldest son to a major business school. And for her work, it is to open a second restaurant.
