Corina Lisseth
Corina is a person who is happy and hardworking. She lives with her husband and three children. Corina strives every day to provide for her family.

She has a shop where she sells breakfast food, lunch food, drinks, snacks, typical local dishes, bread, cookies, and other products. The business is located very close to the house where she lives and her oldest daughter helps her run it.

Since she is very well known and has good references, she is asking INTEGRAL for a loan. She lacks running water at her house, which makes it so she has to go to a public well every morning to bring water to her house. This is very hard, tiring work, considering that there are long lines to get water.

With a huge desire to change this, she is asking for a loan so she can install running water at her house and in this way have a better life.
