María Gloria's story

María Gloria is 44 years old and lives with her spouse and children in her own house. She has a tortilla shop at home but she also sells “chocobanano” (frozen, chocolate-covered bananas). She’s very well known in the area and has acquired a large clientele lately because everything she sells is good quality with nice and warm tortillas that are delivered quickly. Besides, her service is very good.

María is a person with many dreams for the future who is always willing to succeed. She feels that people are not remembered for the number of times they fail but for the number of times they succeed and she will be remembered for her successes.

Because of this, she’s asking INTEGRAL for a loan that will make it possible for her to buy corn at wholesale, propane gas, bananas and chocolate, among others. María Gloria hopes this way to give her family a better quality of life.
