Raquel Francisca's story

Raquel has had her business for five years. She learned to make bread and nacatamales when she was three years old. Her father owned a bakery, but it failed. After marrying and having two children, Raquel restarted the business. Now she also makes and sells nacatamales. She’s been able to expand her business and move it ahead, thanks to her previous loans.

She is 28 years old and lives in El Sauce. She is married and has two children in school. Her goal is to open a large bakery in order to create a solid income base for her family.
