Ana Margarita
Ana Margarita, 62, lives in her own house with her 26-year-old daughter who is employed and helps a little with household expenses. Ana is a seamstress and sells articles of clothing in various styles.

She’s an exemplary woman who despite her advanced age does not tire of working and continues to strive to improve her and her family’s economic situation. She’s worked her entire life in this occupation and, thanks to God and her work, it’s allowed her to get ahead and provide her daughter with what’s been necessary.

Many people prefer her because she’s the best clothes maker in the zone. In addition, she sells a variety of styles at the best prices. She has quite a few customers because she’s noted for being a kind woman who is, above all, devoted to her work.

She’s made the decision to ask INTEGRAL for a loan to invest in her small business. She will buy needed raw materials (fabric, thread, needles, elastic, etc.) to make a variety of articles of clothing that will help her attract more customers that will lead to increased income and improved quality of life.
