Rosa Amelia's story

59 year-old Rosa Amelia lives with her life partner and their children in their own home. She has a store in a house in the local school and, in the afternoons, she sells pupusas from her house. She is well known in the area as everything she sells is of a very good quality and she sells at affordable prices. She is a woman with a lot of internal strength for overcoming obstacles, and she gives her clients good service. Rosa is a woman who has a lot of goals that she wants to achieve and she always takes good advantage of opportunities that come her way. Her task is to grow her business and stay ahead of the competition. For this reason, she wants to improve her home where she has her store selling pupusas so that her business will have a better image and better hygiene for her customers. This is why she decided to ask INTEGRAL for a loan to put down a ceramic tile floor. She is sure that this is an important change to better serve her customers and to give her family a better life.
