Maria's story

Maria is a 43-year-old mother with three children. She owns and operates a small business of selling pancakes, pork cakes, and buns in her community in order to earn a living. Maria has been in this business for more than two years. She requested a loan to buy a sack of flour, a sack of sugar, yeast, wooden spoons, and a frying pan so that she can continue her business.

Maria hopes to use her profits to build a small bakery shop in the near future. She joined SPBD in 2020.
