A loan helped to purchase a larger oven, baking ingredients, gas and other essentials.

Kirisitiana's story

Kirisitiana (35) is hoping to seize an opportunity to open a bakery in her home of Solovi.

She is humbly asking for a loan to help her get started as she also needs to earn income to support her small family as they are nearing high school. With the loaned money, Kirisitiana is looking to purchase a larger oven, baking dishes, gas and the other equipment she requires.

She is confident in her baking abilities and is certain that many customers will flock to her bakery for her delicious baked treats.
