Silvia Yanira
Silvia, 48, has lived for many years in her own house with her three children who help out with household expenses. Silvia works making ‘pupusas’ [filled, grilled corncakes], meat pies, fried manioc, turnovers, enchiladas and other types of traditional dishes that sell well because they can either be snacks or a main meal which is why people sometimes buy them every day. Silvia is a hardworking woman who very much wants to improve her life which is why she’s asking Integral for a loan to buy raw materials like corn, meat, vegetables, oil, beans, cheese and others to increase production capacity and thus significantly increase sales.
