Claudia Maria's story

Claudia, 52 years old, is an unassuming merchant selling clothing, shoes, and varied merchandise. She is the mother of 1 child, 13 years old, currently a student.

Claudia’s beginnings were very difficult, which she began by selling gold costume jewelry, with a little money she had saved, but later she saw that this business did not generate much profit, and it was at that point that she decided to dedicate herself to selling clothing and shoes, and she feels very happy because this business generates daily earnings. She has the help of her daughter and her products are sold in universities and in the surrounding neighborhoods where she lives.

One of her expectations is to grow her business to meet customer demand. Claudia is requesting funding in order to buy more merchandise such as clothing, shoes, sandals, cosmetics, etc. She thinks that this loan will help her to buy more clothing and to fulfill the orders customers make. Her future goal is to open a clothing store.
