Otilia De Jesus
Otilia is 43 years old. She is a very happy and hardworking person, who has fought for years to get her children ahead. She owns a stand where she sells tortas and other Mexican dishes in a shopping area where there is great competition since there are a large number of kitchens around her. To be able to have regular customers, she must work very hard to offer quality products and to be able to offer more than others. It’s for this reason that Otilia is asking for a loan from INTEGRAL, in order to buy meat, cheese, seasonings, bread and more products of higher quality, which allows her to gain more customers and improve their purchases.
