Dolores's story

Dolores, who is 51 years old, lives with her family group, which consists of her husband, who is 46 years old, and their two children. She works in the baking business as an itinerant vendor. Her specialty is cookie pops, which she prepares every day to go out and sell in the principal areas of the zone where she lives. She has been working in this business for 10 years, so she has a lot of experience. She is characterized by being a woman who is entrepreneurial, dedicated, and above all responsible. Many people give her their business since she always sells a variety of cookies at very good prices.

She decided to apply for this loan at Integral to invest in the purchase of basic ingredients (flour, sugar, eggs, food coloring, popsicle sticks, etc.) to continue making the delicious cookies. She does all this with the goal of meeting a greater demand which allows her to increase her level of sales and income and thus be able to improve her quality of life and that of her family.
