Geidy Judith's story

Geidy, 37, is divorced and has three children. She used to be in the bakery business and learned the trade from her mother, who was a single mother like Geidy. She went into the bakery business because of the divorce and little by little was able to provide for her family.

But for three years now she has been running a store because the bakery was not profitable due to the high cost of ingredients. She travels from her canton to a city in the eastern part of the country to buy oil, rice, beans and other products at a shopping center, and buys fruits and vegetables at the market.

Geidy is requesting a loan to buy sugar, rice, beans, soap and other products to increase sales. This will allow her to earn the money she needs to give her children a good education, since she is both father and mother and wants a better future for them, as they are her greatest blessing in life.
