Micaela's story

Doña Micaela G. is 46 years old and married. She lives with her husband and three children. She is a baker and works in a bakery with one oven. The bakery is called “Elaboración de Panes.” Her children are also bakers. For the past 12 years she has been developing the business 'Elaboracion de Panes' in her home. It is located in Paraje Chichaclan del Cantón Paquí in the Totonicapán area of Guatemala. Recently, demand from her customers has grown. However, because of the current economic conditions, it is difficult to build up necessary capital. For that reason she approached Asociacion ASDIR for a loan. With this loan she will buy more materials and will be able to increase her sales. By doing this, she hopes to improve the lives of her children and better the conditions in which they live.
