A loan of $1,025 helped to purchase an oven.

Carolina's story

Mrs. Carolina is 52 years old and married with two children who are 3 and 7 years old. She bakes and sells bread at her bakery which is located in Pedro Lorenzo. This loan is her first with this institution. Carolina intends to use this loan to purchase an oven with a higher capacity because she wants to increase her production, and by doing so satisfy her customers' demand. Carolina faces challenges in her business, including the competition of a bakery that produces bread in larger quantities. With this loan, her revenue will increase. Carolina is a person with a desire to excel. She is happy with and thankful for the institution's support as this is the only activity that allows her to survive.
