Claudia Patricia's story

Claudia Patricia’s a 38-year-old married woman with a 14-year-old son. She’s a social communicator and practiced her profession for 14 years but the firm she worked for had a staff reduction and she was laid off. She looked for work for two years but seeing that nothing was available she decided to open her own business, a shop selling women’s accessories and costume jewelry display cases, an activity that has allowed her to earn income to support her home.

She’s a hardworking woman who very much wants to get ahead; she works long hours daily. She wants to use the requested loan to buy more assorted merchandise (necklaces, earrings, rings, bracelets) and costume jewelry display cases in order to offer more variety and attract more customers. Her main dream is to make her business grow so that her income will increase and her economy will be more stable and she can offer her family better quality of life.
