Adolfo
Adolfo, 61, lives in the family home with his wife and son. He has a barber shop where he provides services to the customers he has daily. He has been in this business for many years so he has much experience in it and has regular customers who give good references of his work since they are very satisfied with the service they receive.

Adolfo has worked his entire life to move his family forward and to be able to give them what’s necessary. He’s noted lately that the economic situation isn’t very good and every day the situation becomes worse. All of this has alarmed him because for him the most important thing is that his family has everything needed to live and one day is able to improve their living conditions.

With all the above, he’s decided to pay attention before it’s too late. He made the decision to ask INTEGRAL for this loan to invest in his barber shop buying needed supplies like: scissors, capes, gel, combs and other items needed to provide the best possible service in his barber shop. He does all this hoping to attract more customers that will generate an increase in his income and as a result manage to reach his dream of improving his and his family’s quality of life.
