Rosa Dina
Rosa Dina lives in her own house with her family and has been making and selling corn tamales in her neighborhood for several years. She has a lot of experience making tamales and has a wide, loyal customer base always waiting for her products. She is a very hard-working, enterprising woman whose goal is to provide for her family and improve their lifestyle, since her husband does not make enough to cover all the household expenses.

Rosa wants to buy more ingredients for her tamales, such as corn, lard, sugar, etc., to increase productivity and her income. Therefore, she has requested a loan through INTEGRAL to buy the supplies and get closer and closer to her goal.
