Aleyda's story

Aleyda, age 45, has three children. She is the head of the household since she separated from her husband. She currently tends to her business, a bakery that she started in order to generate income on her own. She did this because she saw the need to take care of her children. A brother-in-law taught her everything having to do with making the products. This is because she did not have any knowledge about this subject. She was learning little by little. This way she was able to get her business ahead. She managed to be known in the neighborhood where she is located. In addition to selling bakery products, she also sells pastries and dairy products. This generates the income she needs to pay for the household’s basic necessities. She wishes to invest in the purchase of fixed assets (cooling case and fan) and wholesale stock (pastries and dairy products). This way she will be able to improve the display of her dairy products, and she will have more variety available. This will increase the sales and her income. Aleyda dreams of progressing with her business and of being able to offer new products that will be well received among her customers. This way she will have the opportunity to notably improve her family’s quality of life.
