Glenda Marisol
Glenda is 26 years old and is a strong, dedicated person who gives her all to her work. She fishes and lives with her husband and two young children. Glenda spends most of her time at the lake for hours at a time to be able to gather the household sustainment. Her husband does the same type of work and they work hard together.

Glenda is asking for a loan through INTEGRAL so that she can make repairs to her boat that is so valuable for fishing, due to the long hours she spends working. It has been deteriorating little by little and Glenda wants to stop it because it’s her main work tool. By doing this she can have a stable life with her family.
