A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a small cart in order to sell food in an itinerant manner.

Margarita Esmeralda's story

Margarita, age 36, is a very responsible and hard-working mother. She lives only with her little six year old child. Her husband lives in the United States and helps her financially.

Margarita makes pupusas, sandwiches, and other products made from corn like cakes, enchiladas, and others. She sells in an itinerant manner and at her house.

She is requesting a loan from Integral to be able to buy a small cart that has a small cooker included in order to make the sandwiches and sell her products right there. By doing so she will be able to move around more easily, and she will be able to make part of her dishes at the time she is selling them.
