Reina Esperanza
Reina Esperanza, 63, lives in her own house with her 63-year-old husband and her adult son. Reina has worked her entire life to contribute to the family economy and not leave that responsibility solely on her husband. She is an unbelievable woman who despite her advanced age continues fighting and does not give up because her dream is to be able to improve her economic situation.

She has a little store and eatery at home that’s quite accessible and visited by many. Reina has succeeded in gaining the trust of all her neighbors who are very satisfied with the service Reina provides. With much effort and dedication she’s kept her business active for many years and that’s how she wants to continue to keep it because it’s very important for her to have this source of income because her husband’s salary isn’t quite enough to cover all the household needs.

This is why she’s asking Integral for a loan to buy supplies both for her store and for her eatery. She will therefore use the loan to buy vegetables, grains, fruit, meats, eggs, snacks, beverages, oil, etc. with the goal in mind of improving the service she offers so that she can cover a larger demand that will lead to increased income and as a result improve her and her family’s quality of life.
