A loan helped to purchase a kneading machine to make bread of a larger size and in this way generate more income for her family.

Silvia Eugenia's story

Silvia is 35 years old, and works together in making bread. She has 2 children and is divorced, she lives with her children in her mother's house. She didn't complete her education at the university because of the lack of time. She got married very young and due to economic problems she was only able to study for a technical degree, she got a certificate as a artisan baker. Today she needs the loan to establish her own business since with the money she will invest in a kneading machine to make larger breads and at a better price. She wants to establish a bakery with a variety of products such as dough, cookies, pastries and different bread. Her goal is to have a stocked bakery where she has all the products that the consumer needs and also she can get her children ahead since this is her only source of work where she can generate income to support her family.
