Allan Gustavo's story

My dream had always been to own my own bakery, and for three years now I have been baking breads which I sell in grocery stores and to individuals who sell products outside of my city. Thanks to the trust of those who would lend me money I will be able to make my business grow, but now I need to buy materials to bake more breads and to hire other young people to help me. Thanks to the earnings I make selling my bread I can better the construction of my home and my business as well as help my children in their studies.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva Volunteer, Kristin Connor.

Mi sueño fue tener mi propia panaderia, desde hace tres años me dedico a fabricar pan, ahora vendo a pulperias, personas particulares que venden fuera de la ciudad, gracias a la confianza de las personas que me dieron capital de trabajo he podido hacer crecer mi propio negocio, ahora necesito comprar material para fabricar mas pan, y contratar otros jovenes para que me ayuden con este negocio. Gracias a las ganancias de las ventas de pan he podido mejorar la construccion de mi casa, mi negocio y ayudar a mis hijos en sus estudios.
