Maria Magdalena
María Magdalena is 45 and lives in a house of her own, together with her grandchildren. She sells clothes from door to door in the main areas of the town where she lives. She is very hard-working and business-savvy. A few years ago, she decided to start selling clothes in order to take care of her grandchildren and pay for her household expenses. María wakes up very early every morning in order to do housework, take care of her family, and then go pander her wares. She has many loyal customers because she is a very nice and responsible lady, on top of always having the best wares at the best price. María's dream is to be able to offer a greater variety of products in order to improve her sales and her income, which would mean being able to do more for her family. This is why she decided to approach the field partner for a loan, which she will use to buy more articles of clothing, such as skirts, blouses, T-shirts, trousers, underwear, etc. She is confident that God will help her achieve her goals. She states that she is very thankful to field partner INTEGRAL for helping her financially with her business.

María Magdalena de 45 años de edad, habita junto a sus nietos en su vivienda propia. Ella se dedica al comercio de ropa de manera ambulante en las principales áreas de la zona donde habita. Ella es muy trabajadora y emprendedora. Desde hace algunos años decidió poner su negocio de ropa, dado que sus ingresos le ayudan al cuidado y sustento de sus nietos y de su hogar. María se levanta muy temprano cada día para realizar todas las tareas del hogar, atender a su familia y luego salir a buscar compradores para sus productos. Muchas personas la prefieren ya que es una mujer muy amable y responsable, pero lo más importante es que los clientes siempre encuentran lo que buscan a los mejores precios. Su sueño es poder incrementar su inventario de productos para incrementar sus ventas de tal forma que pueda incrementar sus ingresos y ayudar así a su familia. Es por estas razones que tomo la decisión de acercarse a esta institución para solicitar un préstamo, el cual utilizará para invertir en la compra de más prendas de vestir, como: faldas, blusas, camisetas, pantalones, ropa interior, etc. y de esta forma espera cumplir su sueño y confía en Dios así será. Vale la pena mencionar que ella expresa estar muy agradecida con esta institución, INTEGRAL, ya que recibirá la ayuda que necesita para salir adelante con su negocio.
