View original language description ↓
Maria Elena is married and lives in Apodaca in the Mexican state of Nuevo León. Her love of pastry making made her take a class on it, and as soon as she started she began baking cakes for her family. Out of necessity to cover household expenses she started her own business, and began selling her products to rave reviews from customers. This has allowed her to grow her business and help her afford household expenses and her children's education.


To keep her business growing and increase production, Maria is requesting a loan of $475, which she will use to purchase ingredients and cooking utensils with the hope of meeting her customers' demands. She plans to repay the loan within six months. You can be part of this business' development. Maria is sincerely grateful for your confidence and support.
