Lolita has been operating her own bakery for many years, and she earns well from this. Having a family requires more efforts to provide for the needs, especially those of the children. She has to work hard, with the determination to have more income, to provide her children better education.

To improve her sales, she took a new loan from GDMPC. She will use the loan to buy raw ingredients, for preparing cakes and pastries to sell. In the future, Lolita hopes to improve the general living conditions of her family.
