Blanca Olivia
32-year-old Blanca is a very responsible, hard-working mother. She lives with her two young children who are completely dependent on her. Blanca's business is making and selling pupusas, hot chocolate, soda, coffee and juice. Her stall is located on the main street. This is a strategic location as there are schools, churches and residential areas which means it is very busy. She has regular customers who enjoy eating her delicious pupusas for breakfast. It can often be hard to find pupusas at this time of day because most are sold at night. This helps Blanca as it increases her number of customers.

Blanca is requesting a loan from Integral to buy corn, beans, cheese, chicharrón (ground pork) and vegetables so that she can make more pupusas and thereby make more profits for herself and her children.

Blanca de 32 años de edad, es una madre muy responsable y trabajadora, ella vive únicamente junto a sus dos pequeños hijos quienes dependen de ella por completo. Blanca se dedica a la elaboración y venta de pupusas, chocolate caliente, sodas, café y jugos, su puesto está ubicado sobre la calle principal, este es un lugar estratégico ya que en el camino hay escuelas, iglesias y colonias por lo que es muy concurrido, así mismo cuenta con clientes fijos quienes gustan de desayunar con ricas pupusas, lo cual en ocasiones es difícil de encontrar debido a que la mayoría de ventas de pupusas son únicamente por las noches, lo que le ayuda a Blanca a tener más clientes. Ella solicita un préstamo a INTEGRAL, por medio del cual pueda comprar maíz, frijoles, queso, chicharrón y verduras, de forma que pueda elaborar más pupusas y de esta manera generar más ganancias para ella y sus hijos.
