A loan of $1,150 helped purchase cheese & starch.


Cipriana's story

Doña Cipriana is a 61 year old widow with two children. She prepares and sells “chipas” (cheese bread) and has her own location from which she operates her business. Workers who drive by her business are mostly relatives and neighbors in the area.


The bread she makes is of good quality. Her customers choose to consume her products because they are better known. Her loan will be used to buy cheese and starch for making more cheese bread. This business provided a source of income while her children were growing up and attending school. Now it helps maintain her basic household expenses.
