A loan of $1,675 helped to buy an oven, baking tins, refrigerator, mixer and other equipment as well as the necessary supplies to start her own cake shop.


Luz Maria's story

Luz Maria worked in a cake shop for over 14 years where she gained extensive experience. However her salary was not sufficient to sustain her living expenses as she is a single mother and the main caretaker of her 18 year old son. Therefore she has decided to start her own business.

She is asking for a loan in order to buy an oven, baking tins, refrigerator, mixer and other equipment as well as the necessary supplies to start her own cake shop.

This is how she is aspiring to increase the income she generates for her home and in this way significantly improving her son’s quality of life.
