A loan of $1,050 helped to buy flour, shortening, yeast and eggs.

Marta Isabel's story

Marta lives in her own house with her husband and three children who depend economically on them. Her business is a bakery; she bakes sweet and French bread. She learned alongside her husband and some relatives and today she manages the business in order to survive with her family.

She needs a loan to buy flour, shortening, yeast and eggs which are the materials used directly in bread-baking. This loan will be a great strength so that Marta can increase production and stock her bakery for a length of time allowing her to maximize sales. She hopes with help from the loan to more quickly acquire a level of customers to stabilize while at the same time she wants to make inroads into other neighborhoods and to have solvency to pay her debts.
