Ana Susana
Ana Susana has been living in the home of her life partner for a long time. She makes and sells delicious tortillas. The location of the business is very strategic, as it is on the main street. She has a large clientele, as her customers express a great deal of satisfaction with the service she provides.

As well, it is worth emphasizing that although she did not manage to complete her education, she is a very clever and enterprising woman, who doesn't let any business opportunity pass by. She is always looking for a way of earning income honestly, given that her husband's income is not sufficient to cover the necessities.

As a visionary woman seeking a better standard of living, she is applying to Integral for this loan in order to buy ingredients and supplies such as corn, propane gas, lime, etc. This is so that she can continue her tortilla business and succeed in generating a bit more income, allowing her to contribute to the household finances, which are more and more difficult.
