A loan of $550 helped to purchase flour, yeast, butter, and cans.


Paulino's story

Paulino lives with his wife in a house they own. He is a responsible man who is always trying to improve his financial situation. He works in his own bakery where he makes French bread in the early hours of the morning in order to sell it before breakfast. Breakfast and dinner are when most people eat it. His wife also helps him make the bread and later goes out to sell it in different neighborhoods.

He is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL to have the necessary help to invest in the purchase of flour, yeast, butter, cans, and all of the necessary items to be able to produce more bread. This project to improve his bakery is very important for the business, which will improve his quality of life and that of his family.
