Alejandrina
View original language description ↓
Alejandrina is a mother of 7 school-age children who need her support to be able to successfully complete their primary school education. As such, Alejandrina and her spouse eagerly have dedicated themselves to their bakery for more than 20 years. Their work helps cover their household expenses. It’s also a service to their neighbors, seeing Alejandrina distributes bread in bulk to the bodegas (small grocery and sundries stores) in the area.


Because of the higher cost of flour, the bakery has entered a difficult period. For this reason Alejandrina is requesting a loan to purchase needed flour and to continue making and distributing the bakery’s delicious bread. Alejandrina also plans to purchase machinery to facilitate her work in the bakery.
