Xiomara Guadalupe's story

Xiomara Guadalupe E. V. is 28 years old and lives with her mother, her stepfather and five siblings in San Salvador. Xiomara owns an eatery in which some members of her family also work. Her business is located in a very busy area with several companies round about. For this reason, she has a lot of customers. They like to buy from her because of the rich flavor of her dishes, her affordable prices and because she employs good hygiene when preparing her meals. In addition, she is very obliging and likes to keep her customers happy.

Xiomara needs to buy supplies for making her meals such as basic grains, drinks, sausages, seafood, flour, etc. For this reason, she decided to request a loan from INTEGRAL that would allow her to buy everything she needs. Xiomara is very positive and believes that although she has a large family and it is difficult to cover all their needs, she will manage, through her eatery, to get them ahead in life and provide them with a decent life.
