Rosa Amalia's story

Rosa Amalia is fifty-seven years old and lives with her son, brother, and nephews. She owns a tortilla shop. She has had the business for several years and has acquired considerable experience in sales. She is very well known in the region since she makes the most delicious tortillas in the area. She has made many clients for herself, since people prefer her business for the quality of the food, the good prices and the excellent service. Rosa is dedicated to her work, active, and determined. She is always seeking alternatives that will give her the opportunity to forge a more prosperous future. She wants to do her best and she doesn't think of giving up before achieving success. In the past few months, demand has increased and she wants to take advantage of this to make a new investment. This is why she is requesting a loan from Integral that will permit her to buy corn, lime, and propane gas, etc. Rosa Amalia has good credit references and assures us that she will be able to pay off the debt and at the same time hopes that she will be able to bring some economic security to her home.
