A loan of $1,200 helped to buy an oven in order to prepare her products.

Antonia's story

The client started a tea service in a smal kiosk in Chimoré. Little by little she was establishing customers with her tea and coffee service. As time passed she furnished it with small pastry equipment. She also received training from the NGOs in preparing empanadas, “saltañas” (meat filled pastries), and cakes, etc.

Due to her interest in being able to increase production, she is requesting a loan. The loan is to improve the investments that are planned in order to be able to meet her customers’ demand. The demand has grown, and now there is an opportunity to be able to get more equipment. This way she will be able to have better production and produce in greater quantity.

With the money that is granted to her she will buy an oven. The oven will make the production more effective. The will make her products taste better for her customers.

On repeated occasions the client tried to save to buy her oven. However, the investment in her products did not allow her to buy the oven. Now, with help from the loan, she will have an oven, which will make her business grow and develop more.
