A loan helped a borrower to purchase tin plates or molds for baking bread, which will allow her to increase production and meet the holiday season demand.


Francisca Maria's story

Francisca says that her previous loan helped her to develop her butchery business in her normal business hours. Her customers received good customer service, and so her sales and income have stayed stable. Francisca didn't mention any changes to her family group, nor has she had any trouble keeping her business going.

In addition to her butchery business, señora Francisca has made artisinal bread for about eight years. She has a different type of customer in her bread business and so brings in more money to cover the family's expenses. At this time, she is requesting a new loan to invest in purchasing tin plates or molds for baking bread. That will allow her to increase production and meet the demand she expects to have this holiday season.

Francisca's goal is to recuperate her investment by earning a better profit.
