Iliseva's story

A bakery is one business that is hard to resist because bread, cake, and pastries are everyone’s comfort food. People of all ages and races eat bread. It has also long been considered recession proof, especially since people have to eat and a large number of persons enjoy and are willing to pay for fresh products.

Iliseva is famously known for baking the best pastries in the village and many people have begged her to bake hot delicious puddings, pies, and cakes for social functions. It has come to her attention that she can start a pastry business and sell these goods to earn a decent living providing for the family.

She wishes to obtain a loan to buy an oven, baking trays, and a bottle of gas. These can inspire her to confidently start with. Iliseva believes small opportunities are often the beginning of great opportunities.
