Claudia Azucena's story

Claudia is in a relationship and shares the family home with her grandmother, her life companion, and her child. At the moment, she is awaiting the birth of her next child. Claudia is the owner of a store where she offers basic staples and other household goods. She attends to the store on a schedule from 6:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M. every day. Claudia took over the business from her grandmother and it serves as a source of income for covering part of her family’s expenses.

She will invest in the purchase of soap, basic grains, oil, bread, sugar, salt, beverages, and other products. Her store will be better stocked, so Claudia expects to increase her sales and earnings. This will allow her to submit her loan payments on time and to improve the lifestyle that she and her family have at the moment.

Her dreams include expanding her business, staying ahead of the competition, and looking after the welfare of her family.
