María is very hard-working and responsible in all areas of her life. For that reason, she has very good personal references. She lives with her husband and two children, and they are a very united family.

María has a business selling seafood in the market of the town where she lives. She has been selling at this market for eight years and it has been very helpful for the support of her home and family.

She is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL in order to have the money necessary to purchase a larger quantity of seafood of different types, and buy a variety of sizes and that way she can offer different prices and cover a much larger market.
