Mariano Antonio's story

Mariano is married and lives with his wife and grandson. He works as a farmer and rancher, while his wife prepares bread. Mariano started his business through his own initiative and has always had the help of his family. They do not work on a set schedule when attending to their customers.

Mariano is requesting a loan to buy ingredients such as flour, butter, eggs, yeast, and other supplies. He says this will help increase his wife’s production of bread so that she can meet the demands of her customers.

His dream is to improve his farming business and to also open a bakery so that that he and his wife can satisfy the household needs and improve their quality of life.
