A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase rice, cooking oil, and other baking supplies.


Rosa Marlene's story

Rosa is 54 years old and she is an enterprising woman who, together with her family, one day decided to start a bakery, especially since one of her sons knows how to make bread. Gradually her capital savings increased. Today she works in her bakery from 6:15am to 11pm with her son's help. Her husband works as a merchant. With the help of this loan she wants to purchase rice, flour, cooking oil, and other products that she wants to start selling in her bakery and to use in the preparation of baked goods. Her greatest goal is to keep up her business and to carry out some home improvements in order to stay together and in harmony.
