Zoila Esperanza's story
Zoila is 48 years old and lives in Santa María, located in the Usultán department. She lives with her husband who works. Zoila has a bakery in her home, where she and two other people bake bread in a wood fired artesian oven. This attracts many people because this method of baking is very uncommon now. Zoila delivers the bread to different customers who consider her to be a hard working and responsible person. Many people prefer to buy from her because she always delivers on time. She is asking for this loan through Integral in order to invest in her business and buy ingredients and supplies such as flour, yeast, sugar, etc. She would also like to buy a large quantity of firewood in order to be able to buy at lower prices. They bakery has proven to be a successful business, not only allowing her to get ahead as a person, but also within her home.
