A loan of $1,625 helped to buy a display counter and pay for supplies.


Marcela Cristina's story

Marcela is 33 years old and mother to a three year old. She and her husband worked in a bakery for more than 12 years. Six months ago, they decided to become independent and start their own business with the aim of improving their financial situation and to be able to spend more time with their son. They are requesting a loan to invest in the purchase of a display counter and other supplies to start up a new line of desserts.
Her dream is to position her business in the market and make it well-known in its area so that it can break even and become sustainable in the future.
