Review on A Bakery For AllA Bakery For All
I find nothing more inspiring than a story of women getting together and making something good happen to benefit their families and their own empowerment. This is one such story. Latin America is a region where 100 million people survive on less than $2 a day and microfinance has barely touched the surface of this vast mass of needy people. It is therefore even more encouraging to hear of success stories of families here and this takes place in Puerto Diaz in Nicaragua.
There is this little group of 4 women who are friends and helpmates, who are there for each other in their daily battle for survival. Karina, Tasha, Gabriela and Stephie are good homemakers who make every centavo count and manage to keep their families fed and clothed within their limited means. All the women are adept at baking, making a small cake or loaf as and when their finances permit. Whenever they met and giggled together in total amity, they would discuss their desire to open a bakery of their own, which seemed like a distant dream never to come true.
I have visited Nicaragua many times in my efforts to make some small difference to the deprived communities there. There was so much to do and so many people to help that I would sometimes feel that we were not doing enough. When I heard the story of Karina and her friends, it changed my mood to a more positive one. Through Gabrielas brother, they came to know of a microfinance company that was giving small loans without collateral. With a small loan of $600 they managed to buy all that they needed for the baking, an oven and a mixer and they were all set to go. Stephie had a larger house and the front room was converted from being a living room to their dream bakery.
They were all single mothers and used to working hard and looking after their children. The bakery was an added, but much-loved chore. All 4 took turns at baking and managing the outlet and handling their housework and children. Soon, with the earnings from their bakery and after paying off their loan, they rented a larger house where they decided to live together. This was a better arrangement, as now the bakery was part of their home and caring for a single household and children became that much easier.
They are waiting now to take a second loan, with which they plan to add to the infrastructure and also take classes in cake decoration to take their skills to another level. The bakery has become popular in the neighborhood for its fresh products and the determination of its owners. The women themselves have found a new confidence and pride in the success of their enterprise and have emerged from the trauma and misery of their lives as single mothers in a male-dominated social structure. As a group, they have triumphed and earned the respect and grudging admiration of those who had scorned them earlier.
These are the heart-warming stories that give us hope and encouragement as microfinance is a proven solution that has a profound effect on those who benefit from it and leads to social revival and emancipation. We at Club Asteria are continuing our efforts to help such women and others in many countries around the world.
