Ángela
Ángela, 45, lives with her family group, made up of her husband and two children. She works making and selling a variety of articles of clothing such as skirts, dresses, pants, shirts, etc.

She has been doing this work for approximately 20 years and, thanks to Almighty God, her work, and her dedication, she has managed to keep the business going. She is known as being one of the best fashion designers in the area because with her experiences she has become expert in making clothing. She makes and sells the clothes in her home, a place that is very busy because it is in the central area of the place she lives.

She has decided to request this loan from INTEGRAL to invest in her business by purchasing raw materials (fabric, thread, scissors, elastic, etc.).

Her dream is to cover a greater market demand to improve her level of sales as well as her income. This will allow her to continue giving her family financial support and, with her husband, offer them better life opportunities.
