A loan of $375 helped working capital for a bakery.


Maria Cristina's story

Maria Cristina is dedicated to making baked goods, which she sells itinerantly. She is 67 years old and has two children, both adults.

She has been in this business for 20 years. It was started by her mother, and after some time she was able to raise enough money to establish her own business.

Because most of her sales are on credit, she collects after 15 days and at most, after 30 days. Now she asks for a loan to invest in the purchase of bread to meet her client’s demands.

She dreams of one day leaving her children a well established business.
