Rene Mauricio
René Mauricio García Flores, 34, is a small trader who lives in his own home with his 6-year-old son and wife. His wife, aside from running the business with her husband, also cares for their son and tends to the house.

René has a store where he sells basic supplies such as sugar, salt, corn, milk, pastries, and candy, among many other items. He also has a business selling pies, hamburgers and tacos made of pork, chicken or a variety of fillings, which are deliciously prepared by his wife. The couple runs both businesses from their home and shares a common desire: to provide a better future for their son, who will soon be taking his first steps as a student.

As they have invested in setting up their meat pie selling business in recent days, they have had to stop stocking their general store with products their customers request every day. Consequently René, like a good administrator, has decided to apply to INTEGRAL for a loan so that he can buy dairy goods, meat, sausages, sodas, eggs, medicine, Pampers and other perishables their customers request. He hopes he can rely on this funding and thus not lose his customers, which have taken so many years to attract, because they cannot find the variety of products they need. In this way, René hopes to continue providing his family with their daily bread and carrying out his duties as a responsible father.
