Ana Lidia Del Carmen's story

Ana Lidia, 57, lives with her life companion, their children and her mother in her own house. She has a restaurant wherein she prepares a variety of dishes: soups, meats, rice, salads, pupusas [filled, grilled corncakes] and beverages, among others. She’s been in business for several years and has wide experience cooking which allows her to earn the best profits. She sells from home which is located in a very busy area. She’s acquired a large number of regular customers who prefer her because her dishes are the most delicious and they are made with quality raw materials under hygienic conditions. Prices are affordable and, above all, service is excellent.

Ana is an enterprising woman who is dedicated to her work; she’s always on the lookout for alternatives that will give her the opportunity of finding the best path to success and she will not rest until she reaches it.

She wants to make a new investment to increase production but needs capital to back her up which is why she’s asking INTEGRAL for a loan to buy basic grains, meat, dairy products, vegetables, etc. as well as to repair the pupusa grill. Ana has good payment references and she accepts the responsibility of the debt while at the same time has faith that she will provide economic security for her home.
