Lina Piedad's story

Lina is a humble and hard-working person who lives in the municipality of Ibague. She has worked for 4 years at her business selling food. Currently, she is married.

Lina wants to increase her food sales, so she asks for a loan to purchase soft drinks, empanadas, potatoes, sweets, pastries, and more.

This loan will allow her to get her business ahead so to get the necessary income which will give her the opportunity to continue supporting her family, an opportunity which Corporación Interactuar offers her.
