In addition to this, she also makes and sells tortillas. She is well-known in her neighborhood for being a woman who works very hard in a sanitary way, and is also very responsible.

It is one of the most popular businesses in the area where she lives because, due to her great charisma, she has known how to win the confidence of her neighbors, who every day prefer her business more. She is very hardworking and dedicated to her labors. She has a lot of goals; one of them is to continue being the preferred store and tortilla business in her neighborhood. To achieve this, she is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL to invest in her store by purchasing merchandise such as: staple grains, cooking oil, bread, pasta, coffee, hygienic and cleaning products, propane gas, and corn. This way she will increase her inventory so that she can continue to be number one in servicing her store and her tortilla business, and so that she can continue to bring daily sustenance to her household.
