A loan of $800 helped to buy more products for her store.


Claudia Marina's story

Claudia is 36 years old. She was not able to study because her parents did not have the means required to send her to school. Claudia is now in a relationship and has one child who is dependent on her.

Claudia has managed a store in her home for the past five years. Her business has been a great financial help. She only devotes her time to this business and it is her main source of income. Her partner provides a great deal of help when she has to leave for the city in order to buy merchandise. This arrangement helps the business to function well.

Claudia will invest her loan in the purchase of more products for her store. This will be a huge help to the residents of her community because they will have not have to travel to the city in order to buy these items. Claudia will also experience a great benefit because she will have more income and will be able to have a better quality of life.

Her greatest wish in life is for her child to become prepared academically and achieve a good academic status since she did not have this opportunity.
