The Prospero Foundation, founded by Ulrik DeBo of DeBondo Capital, is proud to announce that a micro-loan donation has been made to a Columbian Pastry Chef.
Merly, 43, is married with three children between the ages of 17 and 24. She lives in the city of Cartagena, where she has a bakery/pastry shop selling a variety of breads, puddings and desserts.
She has worked for several bakeries and taken courses to develop the technical skills she learned in the academy. Merly currently provides refreshments to schools in her local community, as well as children’s homes where kids are cared for by substitute mothers as part of the national childrens protection services. She makes sales daily, but generously grants credit terms of 30 to 45 days. This form of selling causes great challenges to her cash flow, hindering her ability to serve the community.
Merly requires this loan, her first request for financing with Fundaci
