Graciela
View original language description ↓
Graciela grew up in a family that was always dedicated to making bread. She knew this business very well, so she decided to dedicate herself to it to take good care of her children.


She had the need to make an income, since she was widowed at a very young age and had the responsibility of being both mother and father, since she had two children and a third one on the way.


She started in April 1982, making the most of her knowledge and the ease with which she could make bread. At that time she also sold clothing, gold jewelry, chorizo, queso, shoes, etc. She always sold things to obtain income to take care of her children. Now she only makes cakes because her children are adults and take care of themselves.


She needs a loan of $1200, which she will repay in 6 months, to purchase supplies so she can fill the orders of her clients, making the most of graduation season in the schools.

Ante la necesidad de obtener un ingreso, ya que enviudo muy joven y se quedé con la responsabilidad de ser padre y madre a la vez, ya que tenía dos hijos y venía en camino un tercero.
Comenzó en Abril de 1982 aprovechando el conocimiento y la facilidad que tenía para elaborar pan, aunque en ese entonces también vendía ropa, joyería de oro, chorizo, queso, zapatos, etc. siempre dedicada a las ventas para obtener un ingresos que le permitiera sacar adelante a sus hijos pero hoy en día ya solo se dedica a elaborar pasteles pues sus hijos ya están grandes y ya se valen por sí solos.
