Oscar Adalberto's story

Oscar Adalberto is 48 years old and lives together with his life partner, Ana, and their three children. They live in their own home. Oscar Adalberto owns a pupuseria where he sells corn and rice pupusas, cheese pupusas and 'pupusas revueltas' (pupusas stuffed with beans, meat and cheese). His business is located on a very busy main street which is a very strategic location for making sales. In addition to this business, he also has other sources of income which help him with his household expenses. He has a business selling food and another selling footwear. He is very well known in his area because he always has what people need. He also sells good-quality products at affordable prices and provides an excellent service. Oscar is a man who is committed to his work and has a great desire to do well in life. He is always waiting for new opportunities which will allow him to reach his goal of achieving success. Demand for his products has doubled over recent years. He does not want to let people down and so he has decided to increase his production and invest in supplies. He is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL that will allow him to buy corn, beans, vegetables, meats, drinks, leather, adhesive, etc. Oscar Adalberto has good credit references and is very responsible. He is certain that he will be able to repay his loan and, at the same time, provide his family with a better life.
