A loan of $250 helped to buy ingredients for "pupusas" (stuffed tortillas), such as bean, cheese, rice, corn, pork cracklings, cabbage, tomatoes, etc.


Rosa Emilia's story

Rosa Emilia lives in her own house with her husband and son. She makes and sells pupusas (stuffed tortillas). She has been in this business for many years and has gained a lot of experience and loyal, daily customers who prefer her business to others. She is a woman known for being enterprising, responsible and very hard-working. She has very good personal references because customer satisfaction is top priority for her. Rosa wants to expand her business and decided that the best way to do this was to request a loan from INTEGRAL. She wants to use it to buy the ingredients she needs to make pupusas, such as beans, cheese, corn, pork cracklings, cabbage, tomatoes, etc. She also wants to improve her business location so she can increase her customer base and earnings. This will improve her family's quality of life.
