A loan of $250 helped to buy flour and butter wholesale.

Bill's story

Bill, 31 years old, is single and does not have children. He lives in the home of his parents and his three younger siblings. Bill works in the production of bread of the best quality. For this, he counts on a space in the home of his parents where he has the necessary implements for this preparation, such as a modern rotating oven, kneading machine, and other utensils that allow him to develop his business very well.

He has worked in this activity for four years, and all of this time he has managed to consolidate a good clientele, thanks to his breads’ quality and good flavor. He works with the support of a master baker and two helpers for the production and distribution of his products to the grocery stores in the region. What he likes about his work is the idea of being able to become an entrepreneurial business owner, give work to other people, and help his locality. He comments that he has other ideas for businesses, such as opening an ice cream shop (ice creams with flavors from regional fruit), since the climate of the region is favorable for this. Meanwhile, he continues fulfilling his current work with much enthusiasm.

In this opportunity, he will request 600 Nuevo Soles and he promises to be punctual with his payments. With the requested loan, he will buy supplies for the production of bread, mainly flour and butter wholesale.
