Rosa Mirian's story

Rose Mirian lives in her own house with her husband and her daughter. She makes and sells pupusas, a traditional dish of this country (pupusas are stuffed corn tortillas). She has been working in this business for many years now, and thanks to God and her hard work, has managed to keep herself busy.

Her dream is to see her business flourish, and become a place where many people can come and enjoy her delicious pupusas. For this, she needs to buy a greater quantity of ingredients, to be able to have a larger supply, in order to meet and satisfy a larger demand. This is the reason she is applying to INTEGRAL for this loan; to buy the necessary ingredients that will permit her to fulfil her dream. She will use the loan to buy corn, rice, roast pork, cheese, tomatoes, onions, cabbage etc.

She is fully confident that she will achieve her goal, and that both she and her family will have access to a better quality of life.
