This week we have a fascinating discussion with borrower Claudia (from Fitness Plus Claudia Z) who is currently taking out a loan on Bitbond. Read on to see what she plans to do with her loan, how she first came in contact with bitcoin and what Bitbond can do to improve. Enjoy!
Bitbond: Thank you very much for taking the time to talk to us. Could you start off by telling us what your relationship to bitcoin is and how you first heard of it?
Claudia: In need of stock, I was looking for a way to get working capital quickly. At least in Colombia, we find it hard to get financing and time consuming to get a loan. I had been looking for weeks and asked a lot of people until I luckily ran into this amazing platform.
Bitbond: Cool. What do you think the future holds for Bitbond?
Claudia: I think the platform can do nothing else but grow. It is helping people who want to grow their business. Besides, it is evolving with life, everything is done through the internet nowadays. I admire and Love the fact that it is also breaking the barriers between countries.
I love being able to check the status of my loan from my cell phone on my way to work instead of waiting on the phone for ours or going from office to office as we have to do when applying for a loan with a bank.
Bitbond: What do you hope to achieve with your loan, and why did you choose Bitbond?
Claudia: I liked it because I found it trustable and time saving. I have a job and a business plus a daughter, so being able to get a loan from my office or home without going to Banks is valuable to me.
I also hope I can increase my stock so I can sell my products in shorter time since nowadays my sales go through the buy and sell process.
Increasing my stock would allow me to send the product in shorter time. I distribute health products for weight lose, antiaging and people want to have their products as quickly as possible.
My Bitbond loan will help me boost sales by allowing me to increase my inventory.
Bitbond: What are the benefits of a bitcoin loan compared to a conventional equivalent like a bank loan?
Claudia: It is much easier, It gives me control of my loan without having to contact a lot of people, spending a lot of money on transportation.
It even helps nature since printing paper is avoided. I don’t have to wait on the phone waiting for an assistant to tell me the status of my loan since I can see it from the comfort of my car on my way to work.
Bitbond: What is your favourite feature on Bitbond? What features do you think are missing?
Claudia: I find useful being able to keep track of my loan wherever I am. Being able to see how much the loan has been financed is also good because it allows me to plan ahead and perhaps put in another loan request. Being able to modify the amount of your loan at some point would be great.
Bitbond: As a business owner, does your place of work accept bitcoin? If not, what do are the chances of that changing?
Claudia: I am new to bitcoin system. Therefore I do not yet accept it but my aim is to evolve so bitcoins could be considered as a way of payment for my products. I find it interesting to trade and to have your money in short time deposited in your bank account. That means I will definitely consider including it.
Bitbond: What would you want potential investors to know about your loan?
Claudia: I would like them to know that I certainly appreciate what they do. They trust evolution and they trust people. I apply for the loan being totally sure and confident I will pay for it on time since it has the support of my own business and my job with a fixed monthly income. I work with products to lose weight and to improve health which I consider helping others.
