Ana Dolores's story

Ana Dolores is 45 years old and lives together with her life partner and four children in her own home. Her business is selling tortillas and pupusas. She sells cheese pupusas, cheese and bean pupusas and 'pupusas revueltas' (pupusas stuffed with meat, beans and cheese). She has been in the business for a number of years and has gained very valuable experience that allows her to make the best pupusas. She makes her sales from home and already has a lot of customers because people know that everything she prepares is top quality and sold at affordable prices. She also provides the best service. Ana Dolores is an active woman who is committed to her work. What she most wants in life is to fulfill her dreams. She works very hard because she knows that this is how she will achieve success. For some time now, Ana Dolores' demand has been growing. She does not want to let her customers down and so she decided to increase her production. In order to do this, she needs capital to invest in supplies. For this reason, she is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL to buy corn, cheese, beans, chicharrón (ground, cooked pork), drinks, firewood, etc. Ana Dolores has good credit references and is very responsible. She assures us that she will repay her loan and, at the same time, provide her family with a better quality of life.
