Carmen De Jesús
Carmen de Jesús lives with her life companion and their children in her own house. She raises pigs and in addition to this activity sells ‘pupusas’ [Salvadoran stuffed corn griddle cakes]. The businesses are located at home and she’s had them for several years; they have given her good results. She has a large clientele because people prefer her because of the quality, good prices and excellent service.

Carmen de Jesús is a forward-looking person who seeks to attain success. Every day she works twice as hard because she knows that her reward awaits her at the end of the road. For some time now she’s wanted to increase her sales but needs capital to do so which is why she’s asking INTEGRAL for a loan to buy pigs, corn, cheese, beans, vegetables, etc.

Carmen de Jesús has a very good credit history and very good payment references. She is sure that she’ll be able to repay the debt while at the same time giving her family a better quality of life.
