Sonia Isabel
Sonia Isabel lives at home with her family, which comprises her husband and family members. She is a farmer and also buys and sells scrap metal, plastic, and aluminum. Since she has been farming for almost 10 years, she is very experienced and well known in the area where she lives. She is an incredible woman: hardworking, dedicated, and above all, charismatic. Her dream is to give her family the best that she can.

All this has made her think about the possibility of investing more in her business through a loan. Evaluating the situation has led her to the conclusion that she needs a loan to be able to invest in her business. Therefore, she came to INTEGRAL to ask for this investment loan to buy basic agricultural inputs (manure, poisons, seed, etc.), as she needs them to continue working the land and supporting herself and her family. She is fully confident that this will happen.
