A loan of $400 helped purchase milk, flour, sugar, yeast, eggs, vanilla, firewood for her brick oven, and pay one employee who sells her bread in her community.

Glenda Merari's story

Glenda is 24 years old and earned her baccalaureate degree. She is single and has no children. She has a business making bread and selling it to her neighbors in her community when she has free time. She learned this skill from her mother. She also works in a store where she also offers her bread to the customers.

With the loan, she intends to purchase the materials she needs to bake bread such as: milk, flour, sugar, yeast, eggs, vanilla, fire wood, and to pay an employee to sell the bread in the community. In the future, she hopes to expand her business, purchase an oven that will facilitate her work, hire more employees from her community and and supply stores in her town and neighboring towns. She also hopes to continue to help her family financially and have her own home.
