Sandra Aracely's story

Sandra Aracely is a woman noted primarily for being enterprising, charismatic and responsible. She has sold tortillas and chicken tamales for a long time. She has much experience so she has many regular customers who prefer her every day because of the good service and for the delicious tortillas and tamales she sells. Thanks to her hard work she’s managed to keep the business afloat despite the large amount of competition. Her wish is to continue in operation since it’s been her main source of income for many years.

Like all enterprising women she’s made the decision to invest in her business in order to cover a larger market demand especially during the vacation season that’s approaching since this season is very favorable for businesses since neighbors will be staying home to rest and she does not want to miss out on this opportunity.

Because of the above, she’s decided to ask INTEGRAL for this loan to buy needed ingredients and supplies: corn, lime powder, firewood, salt, chickens, vegetables, etc. to prepare the delicious tortillas and tamales that she prepares every day with much love. She hopes this way to earn her daily bread and to have access to better life opportunities.
