She started this business for her husband who was trained as a baker and they gradually started their business. She works alongside her husband from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. With the help of the loan she will purchase construction materials such as cement and construction blocks to remodel their home. In the future she hopes to expand her bakery into another sector and to help her children advance in their studies.
