A loan of $1,000 helped to buy building materials and supplies to repair the floor.


Dora's story

Dora, 58, is married and has children who are already independent. She is a pastry chef making all types of cookies, turnovers and cakes. Her business is located at her house.

Dora is a longstanding client of the institution since she’s in her 20th cycle. Dora will use this loan to buy building materials and supplies to repair her kitchen floor. The reason for asking for the loan is that during the rainy season the floor bets wet and it’s inconvenient to work under these conditions.

The challenge Dora faces in her business is competition from large bakeries. She uses profits to reinvest in her business. Dora dreams with continuing to work in order to do some home improvements to have more comfort. She feels very happy and grateful to the institution for the support provided.
