A loan of $425 helped to buy ingredients to bake bread.

Emilia's story

Emilia lives in Ajilo, a beautiful place with a lot of vegetation. She is a single mother with four children she is responsible for. They are: Pedro Pablo is 14, Guadalupe is 13, Diego Andrés is 9, and Luis Alfredo is 7.

She is requesting the loan to buy ingredients like eggs, flour, oil, and cheese, among others, for making bread. She says that it is going well for her. Through her business she is getting her family ahead. The most important thing for her is to improve her family's well-being.

Her children were her inspiration for this business activity. In order to get them ahead she had to have work in which she would be able to support them with the income generated in her small home. That way she also gives them a better upbringing.

She wants to use the loan to be able to improve her income from her business. She wants to do this to be able to support her children’s education. She will also start to buy materials to thatch the roof over her kitchen where the oven that she uses to bake the bread is located.
