Telma Elizabeth's story

Telma Elizabeth, 27, lives in her own home with her husband, who is employed, and her darling daughter. She is an enterprising woman who works hard to contribute to the income for their home, helping her husband and being able to get her family ahead. Telma has a small store where she sells basic goods and sodas. She also sells tortillas and works constantly to always have her delicious tortillas ready, which are in great demand at lunch and dinner time. She dreams of giving her family a better quality of life, but for that she needs a little bit more money and the only way to get it is to work hard. This is what has motivated her to ask for a loan from INTEGRAL so that she can stock her store and satisfy a greater demand. With the loan she will buy things like rice, beans, corn, drinks, propane gas, etc. This is how she hopes to achieve her dream and give her family everything that they need.
