Jacqueline Lisette's story

24-year old Jacqueline Lisette lives with her mother in the north of the country in a densely population area which is consequently very good for business. She has run a bakery for four years. It is well known as Jacqueline makes the best bread in the area as well as a variety of sweet and savoury items: alfajores, croissants, scones, semitas (tart of bread dough filled with jam), fruit tarts etc. The bakery is located in a busy street where many passers by are regular customers because of her excellent baking and low prices.

Jacqueline starts work at 4am daily when she bakes French loaves ready for a delivery person to take them to stores and regular clients near her home. In short, she is an enterprising person, inspired by her elderly mother who can no longer work because of her age. She truly enjoys her work.

She hopes one day to be able to afford to take a course or some training in bread-making so that she can improve her products. She now wants to buy supplies such as flour, eggs, yeast, sugar, milk and butter so she can fulfill her customers' orders. As she doesn't have any money of her own, she is seeking a helping hand from INTEGRAL and asking for a loan to buy the above items. Jacqueline Lisette is certain that her business will give her the opportunity to provide her mother with a better standard of living.
