A loan of $2,125 helped to buy a business and some supplies.


Claudia Alejandra's story

Claudia is 19 years old and lives in a common law marriage but doesn’t have any children. She works as an employee in at internet café and has been working there for several years. In this way she was able to get the resources she needed to support her household. The business owner put it up for sale for various reasons, and offered her the chance to have it. For this reason and with her entrepreneurial vision and desire to get ahead, Claudia is asking for this loan in order to get the rest of the money to buy the business and some supplies (sheets of paper, toner, pencils, markers). She wants to be able to work and take advantage of the experience she got as an employee. This will allow her to have an income, continue paying for her education, and expand her business in the short term with the intent of providing employment opportunities and another service. This will help her to stabilize her financial stability in her home and improve her quality of life.
