Maritza Guadalupe's story

Maritza Guadalupe P. B. is 37 years old. She lives together with her two children who are 8 and 18 years old. She works very hard for them in order to provide everything they need to live well. Maritza owns an eatery which is located in the Catholic School of San Juan Opico, in the department of La Libertad, the same department in which she lives together with her family. She has worked for many years making breakfasts and lunches. She also sells candies, drinks, fruit, etc.

Maritza needs to be able to increase her supplies in order to be able to serve more customers. This is why she is requesting a loan from Integral. She will use it to buy more vegetables, basic grains, fruit, juice, soda and everything she needs to be able to better serve her customers and at the same time serve more customers. She would very much like to be able to take maximum advantage of this situation since it is the only way in which she earns her living and it has enabled her to support her children for a long time. She is a single mother and she is the only one who watches out for the well-being of her home and her children.
