A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase ice pops and sorbets to sell.

Rosa Linda's story

Rosa sells frozen sweets in her house. She lives with her three minor children, who study and work, providing some help to their mother with the household expenses. Rosa sells traditionally-made ice pops of various fruit flavors, as well as sorbets in cones and small cups. The business is stable, and her sales increase on the weekend. She is asking for a loan from Integral for the purpose of being able to buy a greater quantity of "sombrillita" ("little umbrella") ice pops. Ice pops made in the traditional way are known by this name in her country. They are in the greatest demand because they are low cost and there are a variety of flavors. This is what Rosa will do with the loan, and she will also be able to buy a greater quantity of sorbets, which will allow her to improve her sales.
