Ana Rufina's story

Ana Rufina lives with her mother; she’s the only person who lives with her and shares her life. She’s a very hard-working woman who has always been noted for setting an example for her neighbors who admire her life since she gives her all for her mother’s wellbeing. Currently and thanks to her daily efforts, she owns a shop where she sells tortillas, pupusas [filled, grilled corncakes] and delicious traditional dishes during the week which is how she earns an honest living and has what she needs so that her table never lacks daily bread.

Ana wants to be able to increase her business while generating higher profits but does not have capital to do so which is why she’s asking Integral for a loan to buy ingredients to carry out said plan. She wants to buy tomatoes, green chilies, corn, beans, pork, salt, sugar and cabbage, among others to keep her customers happy who prefer her for the way she is and how she treats them. It’s worth mentioning that she has good payment references and this makes her a woman who is always looking for the best for her and her loved ones. She is thankful that the help she’s requesting will be granted.
