Sometimes you just need a little push to go on by yourself…
Hi, my name is Jesus Pereira. I’m from Venezuela.
I came to this site trying to find that push I need.
Currently the living conditions here in my country are going down quickly. Through the last 10 years I had several jobs earning minimum wage and that was ok. However, in the last year the Great Dollar is taking over our economy (for good, I hope). There’s a problem about that: the minimum wage is still paid to us in our local currency (Bs.S.) and it equals to $3 a month of hard work!! This led people to use their mighty genius to find other ways of income. There are people that have the luck to hook up on companies that pay a higher wage, and even pay in $ rather than BsS. I’m not that lucky. But never giving up.
So I thought that the only way to improve my economy was to start my own business. I have several abilities and skills. Arts, Graphic Design (professional) and Desserts are my favorite. I tried with Arts and Graphic Design but it’s not worth here in my country. I worked for a couple of international businesses but have not been able to get a regular income from that. So I’m going for desserts (cakes, muffins, cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, etc.) I researched the market and found out there is good business here. Notably, other niches in this area (snacks, homemade fast food, etc.) are also receiving high customer flow.
So I made all the homework and found out I need $350-400 to start sweetening some people’s lives.
I know this is a lot of money, so if you find out anyone else that needs more help than me, please help him/her. I’ll be equally grateful if you have any advice or anything that can help me with my situation.
I will leave some photos of desserts and ideas I made a few years ago for me and for others.
I’m also twisting my mind trying to figure out how I can retribute you for your help. It’s hard since I’m literally trapped and very limited here but I promise I’ll figure it out.
If you want to know more about my life, give me advice, or just have a conversation, please feel free to contact me through: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks in advance!
