Karla's story

Karla is a 34-year-old woman and a single mother with four children. She has been in business for several years. Karla saw the need to generate income without having to neglect her family since she is the head of her household with an obligation to cover family necessities.

Karla has a small room where she keeps an industrial oven that she uses for her work. She has help from an aunt in making the products that she sells. Now she wants to invest in supplies and the purchase of baking tins so that she can offer a wider variety of baked goods. This will enable her to excel in her business and on a personal level.
