She has a lot of customers because she sells the best pupusas. They are nice and warm, the service is really quick and her prices are very affordable. Margarita is an entrepreneurial woman who has a desire to make progress in life. She has a winning attitude and, for this reason, always stays one step ahead of the competition. She believes that when somebody wants something they know that they must run risks. Margarita would like to run a risk in growing her business and so she is requesting a loan from Integral which will allow her to buy corn wholesale, as well as beans, chicharrón (seasoned, shredded pork), quesillo (fresh soft cheese), tomatoes, etc. Margarita hopes that this will enable her to provide her household with financial security and provide a full life for her family.
