A loan of $500 helped to buy corn to improve her business.


Ana Daisy's story

36-year-old Ana is a responsible woman who works hard to get ahead in life with her family, which is made up of her husband and two children. She has a tortilla-making stand where she works Monday through Sunday, taking advantage of the fact that there is no other tortilla stand in the same place. Likewise, she has a small shop and on Fridays she works to make tamales, which is a traditional dish.

Ana is asking for the loan from Integral so that she can buy 20 shipments of corn, taking advantage of the fact that it is priced lower that usual. She will also use it to buy leaves to wrap the tamales, along with vegetables and chickens for preparing them. Ana is a hard-working person who greatly wants to get ahead in life and strives every day to give the best of herself and thus live better together with her family.
