Rina Carmela's story

Rina, 40, is married and has three children whose ages are 13, 11 and 9; all are school age. Rina works baking read, turnovers and assorted pastries. Her bakery is located in the Vino Tinto zone. This loan is her fourth sequence in the institution and Rina will use this loan to buy flour, shortening and sugar in quantity because she now has a larger capacity oven and she wants to increase production to meet customer demand.

The business challenge Rina faces is competition from a bakery that produces in larger volume. With this loan, Rina will improve her profits. She’s a person who very much wants to improve and feels happy and grateful to the institution for the support provided since it’s the only source of income she has to support her family.
