Roberto's story

Roberto is 62 years old living with his wife and children. He has a bakery that he uses to support his home. He bakes sweet and plain bread of excellent quality like ‘semitas’ (a tart of bread dough filled with jam or other rich fillings), pineapple cake, ‘margaritas’ (a type of sweet bread), French bread. He is visited by many of the local residents because his bread is delicious and he sells it at a very good price.

Together with his wife he rises very early to make the bread and Roberto sells it during the morning and afternoons in an ambulatory manner. He is a hard-working man who is full of goals to reach. He thinks that the less one looks back the easier it is to look forward and make your dreams a reality. This is why he’s asking INTEGRAL for a loan that will allow him to buy flour, sugar, salt, yeast and trays, among others, to increase production so that the business will grow. Roberto trusts that his hard work will make it possible for him to provide his family with economic stability.
