Carmen's story

Carmen is sixty-four years old and lives with her life partner in her own house.

She has a business selling tortillas and in addition to this she sells chocolate bananas, charamuscas [cold coconut juice], and ice. She is very well known in her area and has gained a lot of customers. Everything she sells is good quality and her prices are accessible. Her service is also excellent. She always greets her customers with a smile on her face.

Carmen is an entrepreneurial woman with a great desire to get ahead. She believes that you must always dream and aspire to the greatest thing that you think you can achieve to be able to have success. This is why she is requesting a loan from Integral that will allow her to purchase wholesale corn in addition to bananas and chocolate, among other things.

Carmen has the hope that with effort she will be able to give her family a better quality of life.
