A loan of $1,500 helped to purchase clothes for resale.


Claudia Melissa's story

Claudia is 29 years old, single and has no children. She lives with her brother, who is employed, in the province close to Cochabamba in the west region.

She works hard to achieve her goals and got an education by herself, without her parents to support her. They live in Potosí and lack financial resouces.

She got ahead and graduated with a degree in Business Administration from the public Universidad Mayor de San Simón through her own sacrifice.

Claudia now works in a company in Cochabamba, but she also sells clothes to her neighbours. She is requesting a loan to be able to buy more merchandise (clothes) and continue with this activity without having to leave her profession.
