A loan of $1,400 helped to purchase basic household supplies and stock her store with several products that have sold out.


Claudia's story

Claudia is married and has two children, 4 and 13 years old. Since her husband did not earn enough to provide a good quality of life in their home, Claudia decided to start her own business which would help her household financially and enable her two children to have a better quality of life and her and her husband to overcome their economic difficulties. That was why she began selling a few vegetables and then gradually grew until now she has a general store where she offers a range of essential products to her customers.

The financial situation of her home has been improving and she expects her older son to be able to continue having a good quality education and that her younger son, who is about to start school, will also be able to have one. Claudia is requesting a loan to purchase basic household supplies and to stock her store with some products that have sold out.

Her dream is that this store will move forward and that her sons and husband will have the opportunity to have a better quality of life and more opportunities to succeed.
