Marcial is married and bakes from his home. Currently he makes salteñas (savory pastries) with the help of his wife, who sells them out on the corner of 42nd St. This activity supports their family, including the couple and their two young children, who study at the local public school. The client is very responsible and well known by his neighbors. He wants to open a bakery where he can sell his products as well as provide careers for his children. He is very grateful to Emprender and Kiva for the confidence in him demonstrated by the loan offer.
