This project has finished.
Nice to meet you! My name is Eva Maria and I'm from Bonao, Dominican Republic!
I'm trying to raise some funds so I can get a professional mixer that will help me to improve my business and then support my family!
I'm a Culinary Arts student.
My specialty is pastry: sweets, desserts, bread, etc. My dream is to open my own pastry shop in the future but it's a expensive dream so currently I'm working at home, making cakes to sell.
If I just could have a mixer I would be able to create more cakes and sweets!
Currently, I'm getting an average of $200 per month by making cakes at home.
As I don't have a mixer I need to cook the pastry dough by hand, and that requires a lot of time! With a mixer I would be able to increase my productivity and sell more cakes!
I'm trying to do my best to be able to afford a mixer, but I'm facing many problems as I need to pay for my daily expenses and I don't have much money left.
With the benefits I can get if I buy a mixer I will be able to support my family and also to save some money for my future shop.
My family consists of my parents and my 6 siblings.
My dad is working as a farmer and my mum is a housewife. Their monthly income is too low to be able to pay for the family's living expenses.
In case I can increase the productivity of my business I will support my family so my siblings can receive proper education.
I would like to raise $600 that will be used to purchase a professional mixer like the one you can see in the image above.
If I success, I will purchase the mixer.
As soon as I get the proper equipment I will do my best to make as much cakes as possible to increase my productivity and then, my monthly income, so I can support my family!
If my project doesn't receive support I won't be able to buy the mixer and I will have to keep working in the same way. I'm hoping for everyone's support!
