Marina Del Carmen
Marina, 53, lives in her own house with her daughter, three grandchildren and her brother. She works selling fruit and vegetables like watermelon, bananas, oranges, tomatoes, onions and chilies, among others. She’s been in business for several years and has gained much sales experience that leads to the best profits. The place where she sells is very strategic for this activity and lots of people come by. She has a large clientele that prefers her because her product is fresh, at a good price and with excellent service.

Marina’s an enterprising woman who is dedicated to her work and who very much wants to get ahead. She’s always looking for alternatives that will lead her to attain success.

Demand has increased in recent weeks and she wants to take advantage of this and make a new investment but lacks enough capital to back her up which is why she’s requested a loan from Integral that will make it possible for her to buy fruit and vegetables at wholesale.

Marina has good payment references and is grateful for the support and assures that she’ll be able to repay the debt while at the same time is confident that she’ll be able to provide a better life for her family.
