Magarete serving another happy customer

Participant Profile: Magarete Lima
Location: Suruacá

Challenges: Inventory management, marketing
Recent Success: Discovery of new venues for bread sales

Using this information, she has reduced the amount of loaves she bakes to better meet demand.

Currently, she is experimenting with promotion schemes to attract new customers.
