Reina Cleotilde's story

Hello, my name is Reina Cleotilde, and my principal activity is the manufacture and sale of cookies and bread. I have several years' experience dedicating myself to this type of business, which generates income so that I can help with the expenses of my family. At present, I need to expand a part of my house in order to make a better place for my small business. Thanks to this business I can generate income and take care of my family at the same time.
