Rosa Elena's story

Rosa, 48 years old, lives with her children in a house that she owns. She works selling tortillas and has run this business for several years. Her experience in this work has allowed her to keep improving her results. Her tortilla shop is strategically located in a busy are where many people from the community visit. Rosa has many customers and her store is well know because her tortillas are delicious and always hot.

Rosa is a fighter and very dedicated to her work. In the last few months, demand for her tortillas has increased, so she wants to take advantage of the opportunity and invest in her business, but she does not have enough capital. For this reason, she is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL that will allow her to buy corn in bulk, propane gas, etc. Rosa has very good references from paying her share of loans from other institutions. She pledges to repay her debt in full.

Rosa hopes that she will be able to give her family a better life.
