A loan of $450 helped to buy corn to improve her business.

Dora Alicia's story

Dora, 44, is a person who - with much effort - has figured out how to get ahead and raise her daughter who is now a mother herself, of a small boy. Dora lives with them.

She has a tortilla shop where she makes tortillas at midday and sells them at night from her own house or by delivery. She has quite a large client base, which is why Dora wishes to invest in the purchase of wholesale corn so that she can get it at a lower price. She would also like to buy firewood and lime to cook the corn with.

For this reason, Dora is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL, so that she has the money necessary to make these purchases, since if she has more dough she can attend to more customers who she cannot sell to on occasion due to a lack of raw material to make tortillas.
