A loan helped to buy a dough mixer and supplies for her business.


Maria Erika's story

Erika is a determined and tireless woman who has had to overcome many obstacles. Thanks to her bakery business, she has been able to move forward and create a better future for her family, especially her child. Erika is requesting a loan to buy a dough mixer and supplies for her business. She resides in the town of Honda, an area that was deeply impacted by high rates of poverty. This means that her loan carries greater risk.

With the financial assistance of the lenders, Erika will have the necessary items she needs to fulfill orders in quantity. The main advantage she has is her increasing clientele, which means she has many orders to fill and has positioned herself well in the area.
