Francisco Antonio
Francisco Antonio L. A., age 25, lives in the capital of the department of Sana Ana. He lives with his mother, who works as a domestic employee.

Francisco sells medicine as a street vendor. He sells to customers, who must place an order ahead of time in order to get the medicines. He sells on credit, but he needs to buy the medicine for cash.

That is why he wants to have the money he needs to fill various orders and increase his sales. He currently has few sales because he cannot fill large orders. That is the reason that Francisco is requesting a loan from Integral. Using the loan he will be able to improve his business and have a greater quantity of products. This way he will improve his economic stability.
