Simona Del Carmen
At first, she didn’t have enough time to learn everything about running her own business. She worked alone because she did not have the finances required to hire an employee. However, with the help of her children, she has been able to keep her business going.
The loan she is requesting will be used as working capital to purchase ingredients such as flour, eggs, butter and cheese. Simona dreams of expanding her business so that she can fulfill the demands of her customers.
