Adela's story

Adela is 50 years old and lives with her children in a home of her own. She has a pupusa shop (pupusas are thick stuffed tortillas) where she sells many stuffed with cheese, beans and cheese, shrimp, and crab, among other things. Lately the demand has increased, since her typical dish is delicious, made with first class ingredients, and sold at a good price. Besides, the service is excellent. Adela is an active, enterprising lady, always ready to work hard to reach her goals. She believes that one must see oneself as a winner in order to act as one. This brought her to request a loan through INTEGRAL, so that she could buy dried corn, cheese, pork rinds, beans, vegetables, etc. Adela has hopes that she will be able to obtain a better life for her family little by little.
