Clara Ynes's story

Clara is a strong and hardworking 40-year-old woman. She has spent 10 of those years selling merchandise through a catalog- work that generates enough income to help her husband with the household expenses and to put her two teenage children through school.

Her customers are neighbors, relatives, friends and people who live in hard-to-reach areas; however, she does her work with enthusiasm and a positive attitude. This enables her to stay close to home and spend more time with her family.

She will invest the loan that she is requesting in the purchase of merchandise like clothing, perfume and accessories, with the aim of taking advantage of the special seasons that are coming up. This will enable her to have a greater availability and variety of items to satisfy her customers' tastes, thereby increasing the earnings that she obtains with her work.

Clara dreams of acquiring her own house where she can offer greater well-being and quality of life to her family. In addition, she wants to give her children a quality education so that they can be honorable and successful professionals.
