Nelson Jaime's story

Nelson Jaime P. L. is 39 years old, and he has a bakery. In the bakery he makes different types of bread, be it sweet or salty. The bakery is in his own house, which is located in Santa Tecla in the La Libertad department. He lives with his wife and their five children. They are between 5 and 19 years old, and they go to school.

Nelson has had the bakery for 20 years, and he has won many customers. He has the experience to be able to improve his service and offer a greater variety of bread. Nelson’s business is very well established, and there are six bread deliverymen to leave the bread at each customer’s business.

Nelson is asking Integral for a loan to buy a larger quantity of flour, sugar, honey, and a lot of other ingredients that are vital to do this job. It is very important to Nelson to be able to improve his business because his extended family needs it a lot. That is because it is his only way of earning a living. His children are very proud of their father because they have always seen him work and put forth all of his effort for them.
