Ana Olga
Ana Olga lives with her three children in their own home. She works selling pupusas (stuffed tortilla, a traditional dish of El Salvador) in her place of residence. She has worked in this small business for a few years and she has acquired valuable experience which allows her to speed up the production. Thanks to her good management of sales she always obtains the best profits. The community where she lives is very busy, so she has many customers. Although her best customers are her neighbours, they all prefer her because her product is high quality, at an accessible price, and above all has the fastest service in the area.

Ana is an active woman, and very dedicated to her work. She wants to get ahead and to achieve her dreams, so every day she puts the maximum effort into her work, as she knows that only then will she achieve the success she hopes for so much. In the last few weeks demand has increased, and she wishes to make the most of this for a new investment, but she does not have sufficient capital to support this. For this reason she is applying to INTEGRAL for a loan which will allow her to buy corn wholesale, and shredded pork, soft cheese, firewood etc. Ana Olga has good payment references and is very responsible, she guarantees that she will be able to repay the debt, and at the same time she has faith that she will bring financial security to her home.
