A loan of $725 helped to buy skirts and blankets at wholesale to sell.


Claudina's story

Claudina is 63 years old and has been a widow for some time. She has a son aged 19. Claudina sells clothing, including skirts, and blankets in the local fairs around the city of La Paz.

This loan is her first with this institution. She will use the loan to purchase clothing at wholesale and, thus, restock her business. Her rationale for requesting the loan is to expand her merchandise.

Claudina confronts challenges to her business, especially competition, and she will utilize these funds to continue purchasing merchandise and, in this manner, to generate additional income.

Claudina feels content and very grateful for the offer of an opportunity to grow in her activity and increase her income and, ultimately, the quality of life for her and her family.
