Jewel from Lapu Lapu, Philippines

Working to support my younger siblings’ education! Need electric mixer to grow my baking business.

If I achieve this I would be able to increase my income and be able to continuously send my 5 younger siblings to school.

My need and situation

I am Jewel, a 32-year-old alumna of the Academy for Creating Enterprise. I have been playing the role of a mother to my family since my mother died 12 years ago, providing for myself and my 5 younger siblings. I have a cake and pastry home-based shop called Jewelicious Cakes, which I started few years back.

I have a dream of putting my younger siblings through college so they could get better opportunities in the future. I can do this by improving the quality of my cakes and pastries and producing more on a daily basis.

I need a high-speed electric mixer, instead of the handheld type that I am currently using right now, to improve the quality of my products and increase the quantity of output as well.

If I achieve this, I would be able to increase my income and be able to continuously send my 5 younger siblings to school.

Jewel is an alumna of the Academy for Creating Enterprise and is a neighbor as well. I have known her family for more than 10 years now and I have seen the struggles that she went through right after her mother passed away. Being the eldest daughter, she became the one in charge of taking care of her five younger siblings. She didn't finish her college degree because there wasn't any money to spare. She studied baking and improved her skills by enrolling in free community classes. She needs help in purchasing a high speed mixer, which would allow her to bake more cakes and open the door to providing baking lessons to augment her income. She is a talented baker and very patient in marketing her products.
