A loan of $300 helped to buy flour, sugar, yeast, and oil, among other products.


Silvia Patricia's story

Silvia sells bread for a living. She is 37 years old and she has two wonderful children who are five and nine years old. She lives in her own home and the bakery is her source of income. She started her business two years ago and she works Monday through Saturday from 6:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

She will use this much-needed loan to buy flour, sugar, yeast, and oil, among other products to make bread. This investment will allow her to increase her production capability, expand her clientele, and increase her income, all of which will strengthen her business.

Her dream is to maximize her income so she can offer her children a better education and a better quality of life.
