Silvia Lorena
Silvia, age 44, lives with her family in her own house. She sells fruits and vegetables like bananas, oranges, tomatoes, onions, and chilies, among others. She has had the business for several years, and it has gifted her with a lot of sales experience that allows her to get better profits.

The place where she sells is very strategic to her business activity, and it is very crowded. She now has a lot of clientele who prefer her because her product is fresh, it is a good price and quality, and it has excellent service.

Silvia is an enterprising woman who works with a great desire to get ahead. She is always looking for choices that will allow her to be successful. Demand has increased in the last few weeks, and she wants to take advantage of this by making a new investment. However, she does not have enough capital to support this.

That is why she is requesting a loan from Integral that will allow her to buy wholesale fruits and vegetables. Silvia has good payment references. She is grateful for the support, and she affirms that she will be able to repay the debt. She trusts that she will give her family a better life.
