Mercedes Pilar's story

Mercedes is a very happy and hardworking woman. For more than 10 years she has been making lunches, which has become a way for her to earn her living and move forward. She lives with her partner and one son, who is a student. Mercedes has her business in a very busy place, so her sales are very stable, and she has regular customers who eat her food every day. She is asking INTEGRAL for a loan in order to have the necessary help to buy meat, vegetables, staple grains, and drinks in order to make a larger quantity of food and in this way greatly increase her sales, which is her main desire.
