Raúl's story

Raúl is 33 years old and lives in his own house with his family which comprises his partner and 2 children who are currently in their first years at school. The most important thing for Raúl is his family and it is for them that he works hard to give them their daily bread and cover the most basic necessities. Raúl makes and sells bread. He owns a bakery where he sells a variety of delicious breads. He has been in the business for 14 years which has given him a lot of experience. In addition he has managed to establish a very loyal client base of several customers for the service he offers. His dream is to see his children become professonals, with better living conditions than he himself has had. This is the reason why he works hard with all his might to keep the business alive, a business which for many years has allowed them to survive. His dream is to expand the business to have the capacity to meet increased demand to generate more income. This has led him to take the decision to ask INTEGRAL for a loan to invest in his basic ingredients (flour, sugar, cinnamon, water, eggs, food colourings, oil, etc.) which will allow him to reach his goal of meeting increased demand to generate improved earnings so that his and his family's quality of life can improve over time.
