Lidia's story

Fifty-two year old Lidia lives with her life partner and their children. She is a very hard-working woman who has always been portrayed as very honest and responsible. She has a small business where she sells choco-bananas, freezer pops, popsicles and other refrigerated foods. She also sells clothing on the street. She has always liked giving the best of herself and giving of herself fully to her work, serving as a good example to her children and the rest of her family. Lidia wishes to increase her sales and for this reason approached INTEGRAL to apply for a loan to buy firewood, cocoa, skewers, fruit, bananas and sugar, among other things. She hopes to be able to count on the assistance, and hopes that God will not abandon her and will give her the blessing to take home the daily bread.
