Berta Alicia
Berta Alicia, 65, is a person who has worked very hard in order to get ahead. She lives with her only daughter who shares in household expenses and for whom she strove daily selling meat in the market, a job she had to leave because in time it became too demanding for her.

Currently, Berta works making tortillas, work she does at home and that fortunately produces great benefits.

She’s asking INTEGRAL for a loan to buy corn at wholesale because it’s a little less expensive this way and also to buy lime powder to add to the corn. With this Berta expects not only to save some money but also to make more tortillas thus increasing sales which is her main concern.
