A loan of $1,000 helped to buy ingredients to bake cakes such as flour and milk, and to use the balance to pay off a debt.


Mary Shirley's story

Mary is a long-time member of our institution and she is in her second loan cycle.
Mary is married and has 2 small daughters and they live in a family home. Her business is a bakery and she bakes cakes for all types of events (birthdays, baptisms, weddings, etc). She has had her business for more than 5 years and she will use the requested loan to buy ingredients to make the cakes such as flour and milk, and the balance to pay off a debt. Her business is going very well and is growing. Mary is very hard-working and appreciative of the institution that is offering her the support.
