Nicolasa Emperatriz's story

Nicolasa, 66, is married and has two children. 8 years ago she decided to set up a bakery in her home with the support of her husband.

They make delicious bread, which is very popular with her neighbours and she has plenty of clients. They sell basic bread like the so-called "French" bread, cheesy bread and biscuits etc. as well as sweet breads like empanada, nibbles and cakes, among others. As she is older, she dreams of being able to repair her little house with her earnings and to have a suitable home.

With the money that she has borrowed she has succeeded in growing her business more than she expected, the demand from her regular and occasional customers has increased thanks to the excellent and delicious bread that she makes with a great amount of effort, love and enthusiasm for bread making.

Nicolasa is requesting this loan to buy ingredients like flour, sugar, cheese, butter, yeast, salt and firewood among others and to repair the motor on her cake maker.
