Isabel, thirty eight years old, lives with her life partner and her son in their home. She sells very high quality dairy products, such as various types of cheeses including: duro viejo (an aged hard cheese), capita, cheese with pepper, cheese with loroco (an edible flower), cream, requesón (like cottage cheese), and special quesillo (soft cheese) used to prepare delicious pupusas (traditional Salvadoran stuffed tortillas). Recently, she has gained many customers. She is well-known in the area because people always find what they need at good prices and with excellent service. Isabel has worked for a long time in this business and it has helped her to maintain her home. She is very dedicated to her work; for her, what is most important is doing everything with faithfulness and love, because it is only from these that great triumphs are achieved. She wants to see her business grow and it is for this reason she requested a loan from INTEGRAL which will allow her to buy cream, cheese, requesón, milk, etc. Isabel has faith that in this way, she will succeed in bringing her household to the financial security that they need and continue collaborating with her husband to sustain the home.
