María Julia's story

María Julia lives in a rental house with her two grown-up sons Edgar and Héctor. She is an entrepreneurial and very hard-working woman. She starts her day very early so that she can do all of her housework and then move on to working in her business.

María Julia sells tortillas. She has owned a small tortilla bakery for several years and it has allowed her to get her children ahead in life. Thanks to God and her efforts, she has managed to provide her two sons with a university education and she continues working so that she can continue reaping rewards from her work. She would like to expand her tortilla bakery. That is to say, she would like to increase her offer of delicious tortillas so that she can attract more customers which will help her to improve her sales and, thereby, her financial situation.

For this reason, María Julia has taken the decision to request a loan from INTEGRAL to invest in the supplies she needs such as corn, water, propane gas, etc. in order to achieve her dream. She trusts in God that this will help her to improve her financial situation.
