A loan of $1,150 helped to buy bakery supplies wholesale.

Ana Oliva's story

Ana Olivia, 59, is certain that she must have work if she wants to make progress. After separating from her husband she had to assume responsibility for the household expenses, so she decided to set up her own business. This allowed her to take care of her children and generate income to support her household.

Thanks to her husband she learned the bakery trade, an apprenticeship that she makes the most of to get her family ahead. She doesn't have a point of sales because she has her business in her house, but after making her products, this woman goes to the center of town to sell them in stores and supermarkets. This way she has been able to cover her expenses and give her children an education.

She's requesting a loan today to buy ingredients wholesale to fill the orders requested, reduce her production costs, and increase her profitability.
