Turning baking passion into business in Serbia

Lana Apolloni brings cakes and pastries to her clients in the Serbian capital. Thanks to support from the EBRD Women in Business programme and a loan from Banca Intesa, her company is growing and she has now opened a second café. Lana is one of thousands of women who have benefitted from the Women in Business programme. The EBRD works with local banks to provide financing alongside advice and support. This project is funded by the European Union, Sweden and Luxembourg.
