Walter Balmore's story
Walter is 36 years old and lives in El Transito, which is located in the San Miguel department. He lives with his family which includes his wife, who works as a housekeeper, and her two children, 15 and 12. Walter has a bakery, which he runs out of his home. He bakes and sells different types of bread, including sweetened and salty breads. He also sells along different streets, via bicycle, which makes his job easier. Walter is requesting this loan through Integral in order to invest into his bakery and buy more ingredients, such as flour, lard, yeast, etc. Improving his business is very important to Walter, since he needs this source of income to support his family.
