Pedro Francisco
Pedro is 58 years old. He lives with his wife and four minor children, who are in school. Pedro has a tortillas selling business. His wife makes them and he delivers them door to door. This allows him to to offer a better service and thus have more customers. He has had the tortilla business for several years and it is his only source of income. That is why it is very important for Pedro to get it ahead and improve it day to day. That is the reason why he is asking INTEGRAL for a loan. With it, he will be able to buy all of the raw materials to make the tortillas: a larger quantity of corn, propane gas and firewood to cook the corn that will later be taken to the mill to make it into dough and then make the tortillas. Pedro's biggest wish is to increase his production quantity to make more income.

Desde hace varios años que posee esta venta de tortillas, siendo la única fuente de ingresos, por lo que es de mucha importancia para Pedro el sacarla adelante y mejorarla día con día, razón por la que solicita un préstamo a INTEGRAL, por medio del cual pueda comprar toda la materia prima para la elaboración de las tortillas como: mayor cantidad de maíz, cal, gas propano y leña para coser el maíz que posteriormente llevan al molino para convertirlo en masa y así elaborar las tortillas. El mayor deseo de Pedro es aumentar la cantidad de producción para percibir mayores ganancias.
