A loan of $1,200 helped to buy a machine for her bakery.

Rosa Carmela's story

Rosa is 50 years old. She started her business 15 years ago. Her business is the production and sale of bread, which she sells in the mornings and her husband is in charge of in the afternoons. She began selling in her house, then proposed to rent a house. Her husband also works with her. She has 4 children, one of which already has her own bakery thanks to Rosa's example as a businesswoman and support as a mother. One of her daughters is a primary school teacher, and another works with her in the bakery, as they have a high demand for bread orders.

Rosa wants a loan to be able to buy a dough mixing machine, which will help her to work better and without so much effort. Also, with this machinery investment, she wants to take advantage of the end-of-year sales, which, thank God, increase.
