A loan helped to purchase flour, leavening, butter, and other ingredients and also to invest in firewood and pans, so to have the necessary items to continue making and selling artisan bread.


Romelia's story

Romelia wants to strengthen her bakery business and, to do so, she needs to have working capital available. For this reason, she asks for another loan. She will purchase flour, leavening, butter, and other ingredients and will also invest in firewood and pans, so to have the necessary items to continue making and selling artisan bread.

She is grateful to the Kiva investors and to PADECOMSM Crédito for the financial support she previously received since, in this way, she was able to stock her inventory with more products to maintain the continuity of her business. She states that, with the profits generated from her business, she has been able to pay her father's medical expenses, who has had health problems and is receiving medical treatment.
