A loan of $1,000 helped to buy flour and a fridge.

Francisco Alejandro's story

Francisco is 26 years old and he runs a bakery in his house, located in Orquídeas de Guayaquil (an urban area named after the many orchids that existed when the place was discovered).

He chose to engage in bakery because he leaned how to bake bread many years ago, and he did not want to waste this experience. To start his baking activity he bought flour and an oven that he put in the front part of his house. He currently sells bread in a small room of his house, where he works backing bread form 5 am until 12 pm when he closes the shop.

The loan he is requesting will be used to buy flour and a fridge for the drinks he wants to sell in his bakery. In the future he wants to own a bigger bakery.
