A loan of $475 helped to buy merchandise.

Lizeth Claudia's story

Claudia, 24, makes a living selling basic necessities in her neighborhood store in the Costanera area.

This is her first loan cycle with the institution. She's going to use this loan to buy merchandise to stock her business: groceries, sweets, and soft drinks. She's requesting the loan because she has a lot of demand; this is how she increases her sales and she needs to stock her merchandise. She's going to use the profits to buy more merchandise to stock her store and continue growing more every day.

The challenge Claudia faces in her business is competition because there are several stores in the area. Her desire for her business is to keep on selling and to have a bigger and better-stocked store so she can make her business grow.
