Salvador is from Mexico. He needs a loan of $450 to buy ingredients to make and sell desserts.
Salvador is 21 years old and runs a small business selling desserts. He lives in World Vision's Crescencio Morales region in Mexico. Salvador has sold desserts in this area for three years. He first entered the business as a small child, when he began helping his mother make and sell desserts.
Nowadays, he continues helping his mother. Early in the morning, he begins selling the desserts his mother made the night before, including cakes, donuts, pies, jellies, creme caramel, and rice pudding. He remains in this business because his mother has made good profits making desserts, and hopes increasing business will allow him to pay for school expenses.
Salvador has requested a loan from World Vision to expand his business. With the loan, he would be able buy more ingredients, such as flour, eggs, milk, butter, whipped cream, food dyes, fruits, and so on, allowing his family to make and sell more desserts.
