Cinthia Mercedes's story

Mrs. Cinthia is a hardworking young woman. She sells “masitas” (a type of pastry), which she prepares from her home. Her specialty is "Llauchas", a large empanada filled with lots of cheese. She also bakes pies and cakes for birthdays and weddings.

She lives in a house on #5 Pampahasi Street with her husband Omar and their two young children. Cinthia started her business two years ago and is requesting a loan so that she can open a store where she can sell more pastries. She is very responsible at her work and dedicated to her family.
