A loan of $125 helped to pay for training in preparing pastries and cake toppings.


Marcela's story

Marcela is 35 years old and has been working in travel agency for more than five years. She tells us that pastry-making is one of her big passions but, for financial reasons, this dream has always been left to one side. For some months, though, Marcela has been making cakes and tarts on order and this has motivated her to become independent and create her own business. However, she says that she first needs to do training in order to perfect her skills and that is why she is applying for a loan. With the loan, she will pay for training in preparing pastries and cake toppings. Marcela dreams of having her own pastry shop and becoming the number-one pastry chef in town.
