Cinthya's story

Cinthya is still selling her home-baked bread and pastries. She wants to strengthen her food-selling business with this loan. She always does the household chores and three times a week she makes bread, pastries, and at night she makes fast foods. With her previous loan she bought equipment and stocked up on raw materials. With this new loan she will stock up on raw materials and food preparation products.

She has future plans to set up shop in the urban center of Turrialba with a bigger food business and to create jobs. With her earnings she will be able to build her own home and pay for her children's education. She dreams of seeing her children become professionals so they will have a better life.

She managed her previous loan well considering her limitations and the circumstances in which she works. Her business has increased since her previous loan.
