Reyna Isabel's story

The desire to succeed made 33 year old Reyna Isabel enter the business world. Three years ago she decided to start a little store in the living room of her home, where she sells a variety of goods such as: grains, candies, detergents, drinks, etc. In addition to her store, she has a little pupusa stand which she runs with her sister-in-law who is part of her family group along with her two little children and her brother. For some years, she has worked very hard to raise her family as she is a single mother and does not have the support of her children's father. She is a courageous woman who has a lot of will to succeed. Her greatest dream is to give her children a different quality of life to the one she has experienced. It is certain that, with the help that she is requesting now from Integral to boost her business, she will be able to achieve her dream of improving her quality of life and that of her family, although the situation is very difficult and and she knows that the only way to change her reality is to work very hard. The loan that she is requesting will be used to buy mostly: drinks and staple grains as she has noted an increase in demand for these products. As an enterprising woman, she doesn't want to let this opportunity slip by. It is very important to mention that she is very grateful for the help that she has received from this institution when, as in this case, she needed someone to lend her a hand.
