Berta Rosalva's story

Berta Rosalva, 38, lives with her son and daughter in her house. Berta’s two children are in school and they hope someday to become great professionals to help their beloved mother who has worked so hard to help them continue with their schooling.

She sells flavored ice drinks in the most popular areas where she lives. Thanks to God she has managed to win over the trust of many customers since she is noted for her kindness and because she always has delicious, hygienic drinks at, above all, good prices. Her dream is to see her children in better conditions and with better opportunities than she had.

This has impelled her to make the decision to request this loan from INTEGRAL to buy raw materials needed to keep her business going. She will use the loan to buy a variety of syrups, salt, lemons, ice, etc. She hopes thus to improve her and her family’s living conditions.
