Juana Antonia's story

Juana Antonia, 59, lives with her spouse. She has a “pupusería” (shop selling 'pupusas', typical Salvadoran fast food) that she uses to support her household. Juana is already of an advanced age but that does not hold her back; she is an enthusiastic, very active woman.

She has secured many customers because her pupusas are very well known in the area and people prefer them because they have an unequaled flavor; besides, the pupusería is very clean and Juana is very hygienic in her food preparation techniques.

She has two strengths that help her work with much dedication: her faith and her hope. And this is why she’s asking INTEGRAL for a loan that will make it possible for her to buy supplies like rice, beans, corn, fried pork skin and cheese, among others.

This is how Juana provides daily support for her home and how she hopes in the future to proviD. economic security and a better quality of life to her family.
