María Deysi
María Deysi Marilú B., age 43, lives in Santa Tecla. It is a beautiful city located in the La Libertad department. She lives with her husband, who works for a private company, and their four children. The three youngest go to school, and the oldest works.

María has a restaurant, which is located in her house. She has been selling food for many years. She sells in the mornings and at midday. Because she has had her business for many years, she has a lot of customers.

That is why the stove that she has is not sufficient to make all of the food she needs to take care of her customers. That is why she is requesting a loan from Integral. With the loan she will have enough money to buy another stove. That will facilitate her cooking different types of food, and she will be able to take care of more people.

She also wants to be able to buy vegetables, basic grains, and drinks in order to have more raw material to make the food. María is a hard-working person who wants to be able to improve the family’s economy. That is the reason she wants to improve it.
