A loan of $700 helped to buy corn in bulk.


María Isabel's story

María Isabel is fifty-two years old and lives with her children in their own house. She has a tortillería (a place where she makes and sells tortillas), and the money it brings in is what sustains the household. People come to her because she sells the best tortillas around, and because she serves her customers quickly and charges good prices. María Isabel is a very active woman, always staying ahead of the competition and working hard to grow her business. For her, success in life means always moving forward. For this reason, she is asking INTEGRAL for a loan which will enable her to buy corn, in bulk, so that she can go on producing tortillas and keeping her customers happy. María Isabel hopes that in this way she will build a secure economic foundation for her household.
