María Francisca's story

María Francisca is 78 years old and lives with her daughter. She has a business selling pupusas [thick, hand-made corn tortillas stuffed with other ingredients], which helps her to keep up with the household expenses. She sells pupusas filled with beans, cheese and pork rinds. She is very well known in her locality because she makes the most exquisite pupusas, sells them at a good price, and uses ingredients of excellent quality. María is an enterprising woman who, despite her age, is always ready to work hard to get ahead. She believes that once you plant an idea you can harvest a wish, and hers is to expand her business. She already has borrowing experience so she is excited to request a loan from INTEGRAL. This loan will let her buy corn wholesale, as well as beans, pork rinds, cheese, etc. María Francisca is confident that this will help her give her family a better quality of life.
