Doña Rosalia lives in the municipality of Ciudad Arce, in the ‘Departamento’ of La Libertad., together with her husband and two children. For five years she has dedicated herself to the sale of food typical to her area and for three years she has also sold coconuts. She has had several loans with Integral, which she has paid off punctually and has invested in the business with the desire to strengthen it. Now her priority is to construct a wall around the house with the desire to protect it from the strong rains that come in the winter and enter the house, generating great insecurity. This is the reason for requesting for a new loan.
