Maria Jesus
María Jesús lives with her life partner and their children. She sells hammocks of various sizes and styles. She has several years in this business and has acquired a great deal of experience in production. The business is located in her home, and with her husband's help they sell in various markets and neighborhoods. She already has many regular customers, who prefer her because she sells a quality product at a good price, and with excellent service also.

Maria is a woman devoted to her work; enterprising and with many dreams for the future. She does her very best every day, because she knows that this way she will achieve success.

With this loan Maria wishes to succeed in making her business grow. Now that demand has increased, she wishes to take advantage of it and undertake a new investment, but she doesn't have the working capital, and that is why she is applying to Integral for a loan that will allow her to buy colored thread, wood, etc. at wholesale.

María Jesús has good payment references and is confident she will be able to pay off the debt. At the same time she has faith that she will give her family a better quality of life.
