Rosa Idalia
Rosa Idalia Mancia Gomez is 30 years old and lives in the region of La Paz together with her mother-in-law, brother-in-law, and three young children who completely depend on her and go to school. Owing to a lack of employment, Rosa decided to start her business in order to obtain the money necessary to sustain her children. For this reason Rosa owns a tortilla store where she makes tortillas Monday to Sunday until midday, and on Saturday and Sunday nights she makes delicious stuffed tortillas which sell very well now that there is a lot of demand for her products given their delicious flavor.

Due to a strong desire to get ahead and to provide everything necessary to her children, Rosa asks Integral for a loan with which she will be able to buy premium ingredients to make tortillas and stuffed tortillas, materials such as corn, cheese, beans, and others.
