Claudia Azucena's story

Claudia Azucena is married and has two minor children. She is from the department of Chinandega, an area where commerce, tourism, and its beaches predominate. She is known for being an enterprising and hard-working woman who is responsible with her payments. She has a great desire for personal improvement.

She is a small businesswoman with two types of businesses at the same place. She owns and manages a beauty salon where she provides services including straightening, manicure and pedicure, hair coloring, haircuts, and styling. She also sells a variety of cosmetic products like Selza and Avon, among others. She also sells home cleaning products. In addition to these business activities, she makes pastries.

One of her dreams is to be able to see all of her children become professionals and to provide them with a decent roof over their heads.

The objective of this loan is to buy products like hair dyes, facial creams, straightening creams, acrylic nails, brushes, and scissors. She will also buy cosmetic products like make-up, nail polish, blush, and creams, among others.

Claudia is very grateful for the support that the Kiva lenders offer to people with scarce financial resources.
