She works in a bakery where she has worked for the past 2 years, she also raises chickens.
She learned this business from her mom. The bakery is located in her home and involves her two children and their wives. Lidia makes bread every day and works from 12:00 noon to 3:00 pm.

The loan she is requesting is to make an artisan-style oven to expand her business. This will improve their quality of life as they will have more income from the bakery.

Lidia's dream is to grow the business, to sell her products throughout the community, and to keep her children in the family business for the future.
