Bruna Guadalupe's story

Guadalupe always held out hope for improving her quality of life with regular work and effort along with her husband, who currently helps by transporting cakes to the homes of her customers in the city of Potosí and nearby towns.

Bruna earns a living making a wide variety of cakes, whether for weddings, baptisms, or birthdays. Her daughters, 15 and 10, currently help with the work. She pointed out that the family is close, always looking for ways to improve everyone's quality of life.

For that reason Bruna got trained in pastry at CEA, the Center for Alternative Education, backed by the Ministry of Education and Culture in coordination with Seduca, Servicio Departamental de Educación. Currently this is the main source of income for her family, making a variety of cakes for sale, with her husband helping with transportation for delivery to the various homes.

She's looking for sources of financing to increase her production capacity and improve her standard of living.
