A loan of $725 helped to produce pastries.


Karina's story

Karina is 30 years old, single, and lives with her parents and siblings, who are her highest priority.

With her loan, she would like to purchase some tools and equipment to make cakes and breads better, as well as raw ingredients. With these purchases, she hopes to have a better production and greater quantity, in order to offer the members of the neighboring communities a better quality product. She also hopes to earn a little more money and thus improve her family's living conditions, invest a little more in the area of pastries and also reach some goals.

This is the first loan that she has received from FUDECOSUR. She has never had other loans from state banks, but FUDECOSUR has offered her the loan with greater ease and with much lower interest rates.
