A loan of $425 helped to buy bakery ingredients.

Mary Cristina's story

Mary Cristina Barón Q. began her bakery business together with her family. After her father had worked for several years as a coal miner and suffered through a tragedy in which many of his co-workers were killed, the family decided to go a different route to get ahead and surmount their difficulties.

That's when Mary and her parents decided to learn how to run a bakery to cover household expenses. From Sunday to Sunday this indefatigable family works making bread, cookies and other baked goods.

They plan to use the loan to buy ingredients so they can increase production and grow into an even bigger bakery.
