A loan of $250 helped to buy corn and vegetables for making pupusas.


Blanca Olivia's story

32-year-old Blanca is a very responsible, hard-working mother. She lives with her two young children who are completely dependent on her. Blanca's business is making and selling pupusas, hot chocolate, soda, coffee and juice. Her stall is located on the main street. This is a strategic location as there are schools, churches and residential areas which means it is very busy. She has regular customers who enjoy eating her delicious pupusas for breakfast. It can often be hard to find pupusas at this time of day because most are sold at night. This helps Blanca as it increases her number of customers.

Blanca is requesting a loan from Integral to buy corn, beans, cheese, chicharrón (ground pork) and vegetables so that she can make more pupusas and thereby make more profits for herself and her children.
