A loan of $450 helped to buy ingredients for making and selling tortas.

Miguel's story

Miguel, age 43, has worked very hard making and selling tortas for the past eight years. He lives with his wife and two children, who are both in school. Miguel has a food cart located outside a stadium, which has earned him a lot of dedicated customers since people come to the stadium every day to play all kinds of sports. Furthermore, he's located in an area with a lot of foot traffic so a lot of people passing through stop by to eat something, as well.

Miguel wants to grow his business, increasing the production of his torta stand while also starting to sell drinks like sodas, juices, and bottled water. That's why he's seeking a loan with INTEGRAL. The loan will permit him to improve his production and sales, buying larger quantities of bread, vegetables, meat, seasonings, various beverages, and other items that will allow him to greatly improve his earnings, which is a pre-request to providing for his home.
