Josefa Cupertina
Josefa Cupertina is 56 years old, and she lives in her own house with her partner. She has a business selling food and tortillas in her home. Josefa, like all businesswomen, works every day doing what she likes most: cooking. She has an unequaled flavoring that she uses to prepare her food, and this satisfies the palates of her customers. Also, her business is very clean, and her food is reasonably priced. Ultimately, she wants to grow her clientele and ensure that she doesn’t disappoint her customers. Because of this, Josefa is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL, which will permit her to buy corn for her tortillas and ingredients for her food, including cured meat, meat, basic grains, and drinks, among other items. Josefa hopes that her business will prosper so that she will be able to give her family the life they deserve.
