Dariel's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped me to achieve my dream of expanding my business amidst the Covid-19 pandemic.

Dariel's story

I have a bachelor's degree in nursing and a master's degree in Health Services Administration from the Ana G Méndez University. From a young age, it was always my goal to have and run my own business. In 2020 I was laid off due to Covid-19, after which I began to analyze how I could continue to generate income in addition to my second job as a Teacher. I discovered the El Pastelillo business which they were selling and I acquired it on June 27, 2020. We are dedicated to the preparation of Pastelillos food (a wide range of flavors), hors d'oeuvres, and loaded fries. Our motivation is to bring joy to each consumer with our pastelillos.
