Salvadora is 54 years old and lives in a house of her own, together with her husband. Both have been making and selling pies, hamburgers and hot dogs for many years, and this business is their only source of income. Salvadora is a hard-working, honest, and business-savvy lady, who won the loyalty of her customers thanks to the quality of her products. Building on her already existing customer base, she approached field partner INTEGRAL for a loan to invest in buying more ingredients to make her tasty products, such as bread, sausages, meat, sauce, etc. This way, she will be able to keep offering her customers, who are loyal and whose numbers are increasing, products of the highest quality, which will in turn increase her income and improve her life. Salvadora hopes for the help of Kiva lenders and trusts in God that she will be able to reimburse the loan earlier than expected.
