Sandra Elizabeth's story

Sandra Elizabeth M. D. A. is 45 years old and lives with her two young children in her in-laws' home. Sandra owns a bakery which is located in San Patricio neighborhood, in San Salvador. She has managed to keep it running thanks to the financial support of her husband. However, six months ago her life partner lost his job and Sandra has had to keep her business running on her own. For this reason, she is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL that she plans to use to buy supplies for her bakery such as flour, water, sugar, milk, fats and other products such as propane gas and bread trays which will allow her to expand her production. In this way, Sandra hopes to be able to offer top-quality bread at a good price so that she can keep her customers who prefer her bakery for the special flavor of her bread and the hygiene that she observes in her work place. Sandra has a lot of hope for the future of her business because, like every enterprising woman, she would like to improve her family's quality of life.
