A loan of $500 helped to buy corn, propane gas, and firewood, etc.


Rosa Mirian's story

Rosa Mirian, age 54, lives in her own house with her family. Her family is comprised of her 54 year old husband and their three adult children. She devotes herself to the business of good and delicious tortillas. She has been involved in this business activity for a long time, she has a lot of experience, and her business is well-received by many customers. A lot of her neighbors give her good references as a person and for her service. They say she is a trustworthy, hard-working, and responsible woman who devotes herself to her work. She gets up very early every day in order to prepare the corn to make the delicious tortillas. She likes to give her customers good service so that they will always be motivated to return. She has made the decision to request this loan from Integral to invest in her business by purchasing the supplies (corn, propane gas, firewood, etc.) she needs to make the tortillas. She will do this in order to cover a greater demand. This will allow her to improve her living conditions, and she will be able to continue bringing home the daily bread.
