Construyendo Futuro Group's story

Claudio is 46, and sells prepared foods like many of the other group members. For three years, Claudio has been smoking chicken and pork meat. His products are natural and contain no preservatives or chemicals. He would like a loan to buy merchandise and a vacuum sealing machine in order to sell at other markets. He is enterprising and looks to the future to anticipate his customers' needs to invest in his business. Claudio expects to plan, grow, diversify, and improve his business, and, of course, offer employment to others. On a personal level, he wants to help others to improve their products or services as a way to support his community. Claudio is the single father of two children, ages 24 and 17. His older child is a professional, and the younger one will start his studies this year. Claudio likes working with MFI Fondo Esperanza because he has been given the chance to get ahead, meet more people, and become a group member. He appears on the left in the photo with his hands raised.
