Maria Filomena
Maria Filomena, 44, is a humble, hardworking person living with her husband and daughter who works as a babysitter to be able to partially pay for her studies. María works selling cashews; she has a stand in the central market in the place where she lives and she has regular customers who buy from her at wholesale.

In order to buy the nuts she then resells, she has to travel to a town outside the department she lives in which makes getting them difficult; she does this task twice a week. María is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL in order to have money needed to buy more cashews and be able to travel to the place where she buys them so she can save quite a bit of money this way which is of great benefit for her home.

Maria Filomena de 44 años de edad, es una persona humilde y trabajadora, vive junto a su esposo y una hija que trabaja como niñera para poder pagar parte de sus estudios. María trabaja comercializando semillas de marañón y posee un puesto en el mercado central de su lugar de residencia en donde cuenta con clientes fijos quienes le compran por mayor sus productos. Para comprar la semilla que posteriormente vende, debe ir a un pueblo fuera del departamento en que reside, lo que hace más difícil la tarea de obtenerla, ella realiza esta actividad dos veces a la semana. María solicita un préstamo a INTEGRAL para poder contar con el dinero necesario para comprar más semilla de marañón en las oportunidades que viaja y así volver mas rentable esos viajes pretendiendo reducir el viaje a sólo una vez por semana, con lo que puede ahorrarse bastante dinero, siendo ello de mucho beneficio para su negocio y hogar.
