A loan of $600 helped to purchase pigs to raise and butcher in order to make fritadas.


Rosa Candida's story

Rosa is 40 years old and lives with her husband, her three young children, and her mother. She makes a living selling fritadas, a dish that is typical of El Salvador, and which is made from various parts of the pig. She sells her fritadas as a street vendor in different neighborhoods and markets. Although fritadas are a typical dish, they are not sold very commonly, and so she has a large number of customers. Rosa is asking INTEGRAL for a loan, which she will use to purchase pigs that she can raise and breed—this will allow her to prepare her fritadas at lower prices. Rosa’s greatest wish is to be able to live better and provide her family with everything they need.
