A loan helped to buy an oven and a mixer to make her pastries.

Estrella Del Occidente Group's story

Ever since she was very young, Hebe Schadesda Margaret worked to help her parents with the household expenses. She dreamed of having her own business and learned to bake by working as a helper at a bakery. It was a difficult time because she came from the provinces and didn't know a lot. She had her first child at a very young age but that didn't prevent her from following her dreams. She opened a small bakery business 15 years ago which still supports her family. She is a single mom with three children.

Hebe is now asking for this loan so she can buy a bigger oven and a mixer so she can be more productive and give her children a better quality of life.
