Marcelino Angel's story

Marcelino learned the baking trade several years ago from a friend. After learning about baking, he decided to start his own business. Marcelino has a place in his home that is well-equipped to make his products. His only helper is his son, with whom he prepares baked goods from 5:00 am until 8:00 am, and then works from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm selling the goods. In his bakery, Marcelino sells cakes, sweet breads, salty bread, filled pastries, turnovers, etc.--all kinds of treats to enjoy. Marcelino is thinking of growing his business, and this is why he is applying for a loan. With the loan, he will buy ingredients such as flour, yeast, butter, salt, and more. In the future, Marcelino hopes to improve his income enough that he is able to pay back his loan and still be able to remodel his workspace.
