Dora Alicia
Dora Alicia, 44, lives with her mother and siblings in their own home. She earns a living selling tortillas at her place of residence. She's been working for her small business for a number of years and has acquired valuable experience that allows her to streamline the production of tortillas. Thanks to her good sales management she always makes the best earnings. The community where she lives is much traveled and she has a large customer base now although her best customers are the neighbors. They all prefer her for her quality product, accessible prices and above all, the fastest service in the area. Dora is an active woman and very dedicated to her work. She wishes to get ahead and achieve her dreams and so she puts out maximum effort every day at her work since she knows this is the only way she will attain the success she so dearly hopes for.

Demand has gone up in recent weeks and she wants to take the opportunity to make a new investment, but does not possess sufficient capital to back her up. So she is requesting a loan from Integral which would allow her to buy wholesale corn, firewood, etc. Dora Alicia has good references from creditors and is very responsible. She assures us that she will be able to pay off the debt and is likewise confident that she will bring financial security to her home.
