A loan of $350 helped to buy ingredients to bake bread.


Maria Cristina's story

Señora María Cristina lives in the urban area of Condega, in the Estelí department.

Señora María Cristina is a merchant and bakes and sells bread and tortillas made from corn. She has been doing this for 25 years and it is her main source of income. She makes tortillas daily and bread three times a week.

Her family consists of three sons and a daughter. Her children are completely independent and work in a company that makes cigars.

Señora María Cristina is asking for a loan so that she can buy ingredients to make bread and tortillas, such as flour, corn, oil, butter, sugar, etc. She hopes that the financing will be granted so that she can increase her production and so supply the demand and receive a better income, which would improve her standard of living.
