Vilma Aracely
Vilma is 25 years old. She lives with her young 3 year old daughter and her mother. They work very hard in order to maintain the home and have everything they need to live.

Vilma has a business selling shoes and sandals in different colors, styles and sizes, for both men and women. Currently her business has grown so that three people are working as traveling sales people.

Vilma has her business at the market where she lives, but soon she will move to her facility, which is why she needs more merchandise. This is the reason that Vilma is asking for a loan through Integral, so she can buy a wider variety of sandals and thus to have more products in order to increase sales.
