March 25, 2024

The administrator of the "Stories" cafe in Ungheni municipality is Diana Beșliu. She started the business while on maternity leave.

"First, we had a production lab, where we only made cakes to order. At some point, we came to the idea that we need to develop. Then, we decided to turn to the project. Today we have a wide range of pastries. They are divided into two categories: serial products and those made to order," says Diana Beșliu.

In 2022, Diana Beșliu benefited from assistance worth 13,960 euros through the "EU4Moldova: Focal Regions" programme, financed by the European Union and implemented by UNDP and UNICEF.

The investment was directed towards the purchase of a modern display case, the renovation of the patio furniture and the procurement of a thermal shock freezer.

"Thanks to the project, our business has grown, because with the help of the purchased machine we have been able to make more use of the products we make. As for the expansion plans, we are already in the process. We are moving slowly but surely towards a more prosperous future. I'm glad that I now own such a beautiful business and that thanks to the project I can develop here, at our home," notes the entrepreneur.

The cafe currently employs 13 people and has a wide range of pastries.
