Leana Maria
Leana Maria is sixty-four years old and lives with her children in her own house. She works selling tortillas from her home. She has had this small business for several years, and had gained valuable experience that allows her to speed up her tortilla production. Due to her good sales management she has always been able to obtain maximum profits. The community where she lives is very busy and she has many customers, although her best customers are her neighbors. Everyone prefers her because her products are of good quality, at an accessible price, and above all with the fastest service around. Leana is an active and determined woman who is very dedicated to her work. She wants to get ahead and to achieve her dreams, so she exerts the maximum effort every day in her work, because she knows that this is the only way to achieve the success she wants so badly. In the past few weeks the demand for her product has increased due to the season, and she wants to take advantage of this with a new investment. However, she does not have enough capital to do so. For this reason she is requesting a loan through INTEGRAL that will allow her to buy wholesale corn, firewood and coal, etc. Leana Maria has good payment references and is very responsible. She promises that she will be able to repay the debt and at the same time has faith that it will bring economic security to her household.
