Erlin Marixsa's story

Erlin, 30, is a single mother; she has one child and lives in the town of Azacualpa, Santa Bárbara with her daughter and her mother.

Erlin has been baking home-made bread like little cakes, buns, rolls, cheese bread and others, for four years. She sells the bread in her community which is where her customers are.

She’s requesting her second loan for 15,000 Lempiras she’ll use to buy ingredients like sugar, flour, eggs, milk and shortening and others to bake bread and be able to increase her sales. Her goal is to be able to install her business in a fixed locale and to give her daughter a better life.
