Rina Patricia
Rina Patricia is 39 years old and lives in the family home with her son aged 14 who is studying. She has a husband and another son in the United States who occasionally send a little money so that they can carry on surviving. However, this is not a fixed income as her husband does not have permanent employ in the States and only sends remittances when he can. Rina is not a woman who sits and waits. Three years ago she decided to open a small shop thanks to her husband's economic contributions. Here she sells a variety of staple products. She is very well known in the area as she is a kind, enterprising and helpful woman. She has taken the decision to ask INTEGRAL for a loan in order to grow her business and invest in the purchase of a variety of products such as: sugar, rice, beans, beverages, salt, sweets, pastries and other such products that will attract more customers. She trusts in 'Dios todo poderoso' (God the almighty) to get ahead in this way and improve her own and her family's quality of life.

Rina Patricia de 39 años de edad, habita en casa familiar junto con su hijo de 14 años de edad el cual se encuentra estudiando. Ella tiene a su esposo y otro hijo en Estado Unidos los cuales de vez en cuando mandan un poquito de dinero para que pueda ir sobreviviendo, pero este ingreso que recibe no es fijo ya que su esposo no posee un empleo formal en dicho país y solamente manda remesas cuando puede. Rina no es una mujer que se sienta a esperar. Hace tres años decidió poner una pequeña tiendita gracias al aporte económico de su esposo, en la cual comercializa diversidad de productos de primera necesidad. Es muy conocida en la zona ya que ella se caracteriza por ser una mujer amable, luchadora y servicial. Ha tomado la decisión de solicitar este crédito a INTEGRAL para hacer crecer su negocio e invertir en la compra de variedad de productos como: azúcar, arroz, frijoles, bebidas, sal, golosinas, pan dulce y de más productos de tienda que permitan atraer a mas clientes.
