A loan of $800 helped to buy bulk grains, oil, soft drinks, etc.

Claudia Karina's story

Claudia lives with her child in her own home. She has a store where she sells basic necessities such as beans, milk, eggs and bread, among other things. She has been running her business for many years, and this has given her experience in sales, which allows her to make the best earnings.

Her store is located in her home, and it is well-known by the neighbours in the area. She has a large customer base so she keeps the shop well-stocked. She wants to expand her business and make a new investment into it, but she needs capital to do this. For this reason, she is asking for a loan to allow her to buy necessary items for her store, like soft drinks, bulk grains, oil, coffee, sugar, etc. She promises that she will pay off the debt and also says that it will give her family a better quality of life.
