Vilma Del Carmen's story

Vilma del Carmen is forty-four years old and lives with her life partner and daughter. She owns a store and has a pupusa store (a thick corn tortilla stuffed with cheese, fried pork rind, chicken, or refried beans). Lately she has gained many customers since they always find what they need in her store and the products are very good quality at excellent prices. Moreover, the pupusas have an incomparable taste which allows Vilma to sell even more. She's a hardworking woman that is always looking for better opportunities and likes to keep herself ahead of competition. For this reason she's requesting a loan from Integral which will allow her to buy basic grains, candies, bread, instant product, drinks, cheese, pork rinds, and vegetables, among other things. Vilma del Carmen has hope that with her effort she will be able to proviD. her family with a better quality of life.
