Maria Elizabeth
49-year-old Maria Elizabeth lives in the eastern part of the country, in a semi-urban area, together with her two daughters aged 15 and 8. Her daughters are attending a school near their home. María Elizabeth is a single mother and she has had to be a true warrior to get ahead in life together with her two daughters.

María Elizabeth has been selling beauty products, clothes and handicrafts in her home for years. As she has customers who can't visit her because they are working, she goes to their places of work and makes the most of it, opening opportunities with new customers and visiting residential developments house by house, selling her products. She does all of this with the aim of achieving financial security for her family. People who know her describe her as a responsible and very hard-working person.

María Elizabeth has decided to request a loan from INTEGRAL in order to buy a range of creams and lotions which she will be able to sell on the new commercial routes that she is opening. She hopes that this change will help her to make progress in achieving her dream of creating a better life for her family.

Maria Elizabeth, de cuarenta y nueve años de edad, vive en la zona occidental del país en área semi urbana junto a sus dos hijas de 15 y 8 años, quienes se encuentran estudiando en centro escolar cercano al lugar donde residen. Maria Elizabeth es madre soltera y ha tenido que ser una guerrera para salir adelante junto a sus dos hijas, ella desde hace años vende en su propia casa productos de belleza, lociones, ropa y artesanías. Y dado a que hay clientes que por sus trabajos no pueden visitarla, ella llega a sus lugares de trabajo e incluso aprovecha cuando es así de abrir oportunidades con nuevos clientes visitando las colonias casa por casa ofreciendo sus productos, todo a fin de buscar la seguridad económica de su familia. Las personas que la conocen la refieren como persona responsable y muy trabajadora. Maria Elizabeth ha decidido solicitar a INTEGRAL crédito para poder comprar variedad de cremas y lociones que sirvan para ofrecer a estas nuevas rutas de comercio que se encuentra aperturando. Espera que este cambio sirva para avanzar en la concretización de sus sueños de una vida mejor para su familia
