A loan of $350 helped to purchase wholesale corn.


Ruth Noemy's story

30-year-old Ruth lives with her husband and her three children. She owns a tortilla factory which is very well-known in the village where she lives. She has many customers, since she sells the best tortillas - hot from the oven, with the fastest service and besides, at really accessible prices. Ruth is an enterprising woman with the drive to get ahead. She has a winning attitude, and for that reason she's always ahead of the competition. She believes that, when someone wants something, they must know that there are risks to take, and that's what makes life worthwhile. She wishes to take a risk in order to make her business grow, which is why she requests a loan from INTEGRAL so that she can purchase wholesale corn. Ruth is hopeful that by doing this she'll be able to bring financial security to her household and a fulfilling life to her family.
