Stephanie is from Mexico. She needs a loan of $400 to buy ingredients to keep preparing her desserts: eggs, milk, flour, yeast, chocolate, fruits, condensed milk, etc.
Stephanie is 21 years old and lives in World Vision’s Crescencio Morales region in Mexico with her husband and two children, one of whom is in school. For the last four years Stephanie has run a small business selling desserts.
Fany, as her family and acquaintances call her, sells her desserts early in the morning in the marketplace of her community. She sells pies, cakes, arroz con leche (rice pudding), jellies, strawberries & cream, etc. She also mentioned that one of her sisters helps her selling the desserts at night by setting up a table outside her home. She started her activity to help her husband with the family and school expenses. Her goal is to be able to have a definite spot in the marketplace so that she can sell other food as well.
Stephanie has requested a loan from World Vision to expand her business. With the loan, she would like to buy ingredients to keep preparing her desserts: eggs, milk, flour, yeast, chocolate, fruits, condensed milk, etc.
