Angélica Cecilia has 2 minor children who are in her care. She has had a bakery business for more than 5 years. When she started out she did not have sufficient capital to offer her customers a large variety of bread. Owing to the good management of her business, she has managed to now offer rolls, picos (a Nicaraguan specialty made with dough, sugar and cheese), plain bread, desserts and other items. Over time, and with her repeat customers, her business has improved. Now she requests her first loan to buy raw materials such as butter, eggs, flour, salt, cheese, milk, and other needed products. She dreams of being able to build her house, because she does not now have the necessary conditions to do this.
