Sandra Raquel
Sandra is 29 yeas old. She is a young single mother of two small children who depend entirely on her. Sandra lives in a rented home along with her mother and sister. She sells tortillas which she makes every day at noon, and in the afternoons her children help her distribute them house to house. She also sells them from her home. Sandra is a very hard worker and what she wants the most is to be able to provide a stable life for her children. For this reason she is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL, which she will use to purchase corn wholesale in order to obtain it at lower prices and in this way make more money from the tortillas. This is a very stable business because people eat tortillas every day at all hours.
