William Salvador
William, 29, works very hard in his own shop, where he earns a living making and repairing shoes such as sandals and athletic shoes. He lives with his wife and three small children. William is very dedicated to his job and responsible with all his work; he always delivers his orders on time and is very friendly, which pleases people.

William dreams of improving his business and giving his family better opportunities, so he's requesting a loan from Integral to invest in buying rubber soles, leather, glue, thread, needles, and other tools and raw material to make more footwear to sell. This way he can accept more work.

All this fills William with happiness and optimism.
