A loan of $225 helped to buy flour, yeast, sugar, oil and more.


Irma Isabel's story

Irma has a bread shop to make a living and, with it, she can pay her household bills. Irma is 51 years old and lives in her own house. She is married and has two children, aged 20 and 25 years old. She learned her trade on her own and she has now had the business for five years. Irma works Monday to Saturday from 7am until 3pm.

Irma's loan will allow her to buy ingredients, such as flour, yeast, sugar, oil and more, for making bread. This investment will help her to invest in her business and increase her production and income.

Irma's dream is to improve her financial situation and to help her children so that they can study at university in the future.
