Ana Maria's story

Ana lives with her husband, who is a builder, and their three children, all of whom are studying. Ana works very hard making tortillas and typical dishes such as empanadas (a meat filled pastry), fried yucca, enchiladas and other items. Through this work Ana can help her husband and so they have more stability. Ana has been doing this work for twelve years and so she is very well established in the area and has a lot of regular customers. Ana is applying to Integral to improve the stability of her business by buying firewood, corn and lime to make more tortillas, and also fruit and vegetables, milk and other ingredients to make other typical dishes that she sells every day. Ana is a very responsible and moral person. These are very positive characteristics for someone who is putting in the effort day after day to become better.
