Luchadoras Group's story
Tereza continues with her traditional bakery. The loan she obtained was invested in the purchase of an industrial oven. She made her payments on time because her business had success. In the photo she can be seen to the right, in the black sweater. Her business grew and her sales increased. On this occasion she makes up part of the group of people with businesses such as: sewing, food sales, plaster crafts, a book store, fruit sales, and a butcher's shop. They are requesting a loan to improve their businesses. Tereza's business is baking traditional bread. For this work she needs different types of flour for different breads. She comments: "my bakery is growing, I have more customers, and now I want to sell by wholesale". The advantage of her business is that the sales last all week, the disadvantage is the lack of money to purchase flour by the quintal. Her dream is to expand her bakery to sell by wholesale, she wants to purchase different types of flour by the quintal. This is her third loan cycle with the institution in the five years she been doing this activity independently. It is for these reasons that Tereza is requesting a loan.
