A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase an industrial mixer and other goods.

Consuelo's story

Ms. Consuelo lives in the El Dorado area of the city of Santa Cruz. She is married and has four school age children. She has been working at a bakery for over 10 years. She works part-time in a cake shop and in the evening, she works from home making all types of cakes, pies, and pastries. This is her third loan with the institute, where she has demonstrated responsibility with her payments. This loan will be used to purchase an industrial mixer, another oven, and some provisions. She is a very hardworking person who gets up at 6 in the morning to start her day, then she finishes at 8 in the evening. Ms. Consuelo's wish is to open up her own cake shop and to see her children become upright professionals. She works hard and is grateful to the institute for the support they have given her in the form of a loan.
