Irma Yolanda's story

Irma Yolanda is 55 years old. She lives with her life companion and their son. Her work is selling chicken tamales. She has worked in this business for a number of years since it has given her very good results, and at the same time it helped her acquire great experience in preparing them. She is very well known in the district where she sells because as a walking vendor she sells the most delicious tamales. She already has an extensive clientele because the food that she makes is of the highest quality, with an exquisite flavor and at affordable prices. In addition, her service is very rapid. Irma is a woman with many goals to achieve. She works day after day to have a prosperous future. Since she has increased her clientele, she wants to increase her production to thus obtain better earnings. She needs to invest in ingredients, but it is a question of capital. For this reason she is applying to INTEGRAL for a loan that will permit her to buy chicken, corn, corn husks, vegetables, firewood, etc. Irma Yolanda is very responsible and has impeccable morals. She guarantees the payment of the debt and at the same time is confident that she will be able to give her family a better life.
