A loan of $850 helped to buy an oven to open his own bakery.


Boanerge Enrique's story

Boanerge is 37 years old and studied until 9th grade in school. He is a single father and has two children who study in school and depend on him economically. He lives with his mother and her daughters.

Boanerge is a baker in his town. He learned the trade from the owner of the bakery where he works making and selling sweet bread. He travels 20 km from his house to the point of sale.

He needs a loan to buy an oven to open his own bakery. Boanerge's dream is to establish his business and with it be able to provide his daughters an education and substance.
