A loan of $775 helped to purchase flour, sugar, yeast and baking powder.

Xiomara Del Socorro's story

Xiomara, 23, is a young woman from Estelí who makes pastries. She started this business, her first, a year ago with her own capital. She gained experience while working, at 17, as an assistant in a bakery. There she became more and more interested in specializing in sweets. She makes delicious and appetizing pastries and desserts which are in high demand.

She is requesting the loan in order to purchase flour, sugar, yeast, and baking powder, since these are some of the primary ingredients for making her products. One of her goals is to buy a mixer and eventually to have her own shop so she can stop renting and reduce costs.
