Claudia Elena's story

Forty-four year old Claudia is a humble businesswoman in the city of Granada. She is married and a mother to three children. Claudia makes a living selling costume jewellery and fizzy drinks. She tells us that her family taught her to work from a young age when she did cleaning and cooking work. When she married, her husband encouraged her to start her own business. So, with just a little capital she bought costume jewellery and later also started to sell fizzy drinks. She used her profits to buy more merchandise.

Today Claudia needs a loan in order to buy blouses, earrings, socks, bras, shirts, footwear and trousers. This loan will allow Claudia to buy a variety of merchandise and offer new items to her customers. Claudia's goal is to add more products and to have a shop with a variety of merchandise.
