Las Dalias Group's story

Another member of the group is Nieves. She is 84 years old and a widow.

Nieves says that she has been making and selling bread for more than 50 years now. She has a bakery in a small kitchen in her house that has an oven and her work table. Her customers have been eating her bread for so long that it has become a tradition. She says that it is one of the best in the community because it is so delicious.

She started this business to provide for her children when they were young and to try to give them a better life. All of her children are married now and this business allows her to provide for herself.

Making the bread takes time. She first starts by mixing the ingredients to prepare the dough which she will form into loaves of bread. Later, she puts them on trays and bakes them. When they are done she puts them into large baskets to sell. She has a couple of children that help her sell them and she pays them for their service.

She is happy with her bakery and grateful that it has provided for her for 50 years and that she continues to earn a living.
With the loan through Vision Fund she will buy flour, sugar, salt and yeast so she can continue making her bread.

Nieves hopes that her bakery will continue growing so she can have a better quality of life.
