Ana María's story

Ana María , 41, is a single mother and she lives with her three children and she has a bungalow near her house. She has set up a business in her area that is very popular. She sells pupusas (typical food of El Salvador-tortillas stuffed with cheese, beans, or pork and grilled), soft drinks, juices, and more. All her food is good quality, clean, reasonably priced, and she offers excellent service.

Ana María is an active and positive woman who wants to get ahead. She thinks that you can move mountains with perseverance and that is why she decided to request a loan from INTEGRAL that will help her buy corn, beans, pork skins, cheese, drinks, and sweets. This way she can give her customers what they want in their latest requests for products, and it will enable her business to grow.

Ana María has hopes that with effort she will be able to give her family more financial security and a better quality of life.
