Florentina has a business making breas and she needs a loan to to buy wheat, butter, sugar, milk, baking soda, eggs and firewood because her customers have ordered a lot of her product. With the loan, Florentina hopes to increase her sales thanks to the fact that she will have more ingredients. With the profits she will be able to cover her and her families necessities a little.

Florentina dreams that in two years her business will become the biggest and most well known bakery in the neighborhood. This will allow her to continue supporting her children so that they become good people with better opportunities.
