Rafaela's story

Rafaela, 54, lives with her children in her own house. She runs a food stall where she sells pupusas (stuffed tortillas), scrambled eggs, with cheese, pork rind, etc. Her cooking is delicious and she has been able to attract many customers who like her food which is made with top quality ingredients, cooked in a clean environment and sold at low prices. Rafaela is known for her extraordinary kindesss. She is a hard worker and very dedicated to her household and job.

She has a gift for cooking and takes full advantage of it. The demand for her food increases every day because customers are very satisfied. She wants to increase pupusa production but does not have sufficient capital to do so. Therefore, she is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL to buy corn, cheese, beans, pork rind, vegetables, etc. Rafaela has a good credit record and is grateful for the loan and committed to paying it back on time. At the same time, she wants to give her family a fulfilling lifestyle.
