A loan of $500 helped to buy corn, wood, drinks, etc.


Toribia's story

Toribia is 64 years of age and lives in her own house along with her children. She prepares and sells food and delicious tamales. Her business is located in her home and is particularly well frequented because of the high quality of her tamales and the other food she sells. Toribia is a hardworking and enterprising woman whose great ambition is to support her children, give them a good education and improve their quality of life. She works very hard to keep her business afloat and to continue providing excellent quality goods and foodstuffs for her customers, since this is her main and sole source of income. She wants to increase her income and the only way to do so is by investing in her business with the purchase of corn, wood, drinks, etc. which will help her to create and increase the menu of dishes on offer in her premises. It is for this reason that she approached INTEGRAL to apply for a loan to enable her to invest and continue realising her dreams of expanding her business and giving her children a better future.
