A loan of $1,000 helped to buy more supplies for her snack bar and to buy feed for her animals.

Claudia Lorena's story

Claudia, 23, lives with someone. She and her family have a business inside an institution. Claudia and her mother work preparing food like bread, pupusas [filled, grilled corncakes], fried manioc, churros, etc. to satisfy the students’ needs. She remembers her mother working in the snack bar ever since she was attending school and now Claudia helps her with the work strengthening student service and making delicious snacks. She has to go to the city to buy the supplies she needs to make the food and also has to buy animal feed. To do so she hires a car.

The loan she’s asking Fundación Campo for is to buy more supplies for the snack bar and to buy feed for her cattle and pigs. In this way she’ll be able to leverage the family business so that she’ll always have work and have peace of mind that she’ll have feed for her cattle and pigs available to fatten them up and have them ready for sale in February. Like all enterprising, visionary women she wants to strengthen her business and to work hand in hand with children she might have with her partner.
