A loan of $600 helped to buy stuffed animals, perfumes, and clothing.


Claudia Yamilet's story

Claudia lives in a house with her husband. He works for the municipality for the town where they live with their three children, two of whom are still economically dependent on them. Claudia sells clothing and accessories. She has done this for two years. This business allows her to help out her husband by contributing to the household budget. Sometimes she also sews clothing for sale, since she knows how to make clothes.

Claudia decided to request a loan because they have been beneficial to her, she can pay them back under fair conditions, and they are not too expensive. She will invest it in stuffed animals ($80.00), perfumes ($160.00), children’s clothing ($150.00), and with the rest of the loan she will buy a variety of clothing.

With this loan she hopes to improve her merchandise inventory and increase her number of customers. In order to do this, she needs to buy recent merchandise. Her family is doing well and things have even improved.
