Clara Benavides lives in Magangué, Colombia, with her husband, Jorge, and their three children. Clara owns a take-away restaurant in her own kitchen. She hopes she can eventually move it to another location and turn it into a bigger restaurant. With a small income, it is difficult to save enough money to invest in any kind of substantial upgrade. When she learned about Opportunity, she found a program to help her expand her business without straining her budget. With her loan, Clara bought ingredients with long-term storage capability, like rice and dry beans. This simplifies her stocking process and saves money in the long run. It makes Clara proud and happy to be able to contribute to her household´s economy with a business she built herself and which she is always trying to improve.
