María Dolores
Maria is a 52-years- old and is married with two children. She has been a working for 26 years as a baker. A trade she learned one day when her lady friend was baking and invited her to work with her in making bread. That's how she learned slowly until one day decided to open her own bakery.

She travels by bus to the city, about seven miles from home, in order to buy all the supplies you need to make bread.

The loan is asking from Field Foundation, is to buy flour, eggs, yeast, sugar, butter, trays to place the bread, and other materials. Currently what she is working with is almost useless.

Her purpose is, first of all to repay the loan and still have the support of the institution. She also wants to improve your home, because it needs maintenance and that requires investment. Lastly and most importantly she wants her bakery to grow faster than ever, as it is her only source of income.
