María Hilda
María Hilda, 37, lives in her own home with her life partner, 42, and their 8 year old son who is in school. Señora María has worked all her life to contribute to the household expenses since her husband's income doesn't cover everything they need. She owns a small store where she offers a variety of products such as sugar, beans, rice, seasonings, cookies, condiments, coffee and other products. This place has great accessibility and a great reputation as Señora María strives to wait on her customers the best way each time they request her products. She dreams of being able to stock her store in order to offer her customers a wider variety of products. This is what compelled her to request a loan through INTEGRAL which will allow her to stock her store with a variety of products such as beans, rice, candy, grains, vegetables, beverages, coffee, milk and more products that are attractive to customers. She hopes this will increase her sales and income to improve her living conditions and that of her family.
