A loan of $1,025 helped to buy a variety of merchandise, like sweaters, jackets and scarves.


Claudia Milenka's story

Claudia is 39 years old and lives in the San Pedro region with her two daughters. She is a very responsible person and dedicated to her business, in which she sells garments like sweaters, jackets, pants, etc. She started working in this business 4 years ago, since she couldn't obtain employment even though she is a college graduate with a degree in Psychology. But, circumstances obligated her to take the path of sales to be able to contribute in her home and bring in daily meals.

She needs the loan to be able to buy more merchandise and then be able to increase her profits since she has had a good market of clients for plenty of time. Claudia's dream is to be able to have her own business one day, a store to be able to sell the clothes she markets and also be able to obtain her own house with the fruit of her work throughout the years.
