A loan of $800 helped purchase ingredients for making bread.


Julia Patricia's story

Julia Patricia E. is 45 years old and resides in Ilopango, a city located in the Department of San Salvador. She lives with her three children who are completely dependent on her. Julia owns a bakery where she sells sweet bread, the name given in this country to bread made of flour with either sugar or honey. This type of bread exists in a wide variety. Julia is in charge of preparing the bread that she subsequently sells from her home, which is located in front of the municipal park in Ilopango. The city hall is located next to the park. This has many advantages for Julia’s business since it is a very busy place, thereby making the location of her bakery a suitable area.


She is requesting a loan so that she will be financially capable to buy flour, sugar, honey, and other ingredients for making bread. Julia wants very much to improve her business so that she can provide her three children with everything they need.
