Oseas Neftali's story

Óseas lives surrounded by relatives. He is engaged in the sale of French bread and sweet rolls. He works every day of the week making bread and offering it to his customers. His work begins at 4:00 in the morning and ends at 2:00 in the afternoon.

Currently, he is applying for a loan in order to invest in the purchase of flour, lard, sugar and firewood. With these products he will be able to maintain the bakery, purchasing them at wholesale and receiving a better price from his suppliers. Óseas’ goal is to become a person useful to society, enlarging his bakery and offering a source of employment to young people in the area.
