Rosa Enma's story

Rosa Enma A. F. lives alone in her home, as her children are already grown and in their own homes, and her husband passed away. Rosa is a hardworking woman who, despite her old age, has worked for a long time to get ahead. She lives in very humble conditions, but she has the energy and drive to succeed. Rosa is a creative woman, who has made her home, located in the San Vincente Municipality of the San Vicente Department, into a business where she sells tortillas, pupusas (a type of stuffed flatbread), cheese and cream. She has a lot of clients, and she is very well known in the area thanks to her charisma. She always tries to give her clients the best service possible and maintain quality and sanitation in her products. Rosa has decided to apply for this loan with INTEGRAL to allow her to increase her sales and buy the necessary materials to continue investing in her business, such as maize, beans, a variety of cheeses, rice and other necessities to be able to offer greater variety and flavors in her products. With this investment, she aspires to improve her living conditions.
