A loan of $200 helped to buy baking supplies.


María Deysi's story

María, 53, is an enterprising, hardworking woman; an example to follow. She currently lives alone although her two daughters are her neighbors and spend most of their time with her helping with household chores.

She worked baking bread for the last five years. Cheese bread is her specialty. She also sells other types of snacks like fried manioc, fried bananas and fried pork skin. She sells her goods in the community and some of her customers come by her house to buy.

The loan she’s requesting is to buy more bread baking raw materials in order to have more customers because she’ll be able to supply more demand and earn much more income. Her dream is to increase sales and to hire employees to bake bread.
