A loan of $1,000 helped buy basic necessities to sell in her store.

Estela Ariday's story

Estela Ariday M. O. is 67 years old. She lives in Soyapango, located in the San Salvador region. She lives with her daughter, who is 22 years old and works. Estela has a store in which she sell basic necessities. The business is located in her home, and thanks to the business, she can count on everything necessary to have a dignified life with her daughter, since between the two of them, they work very hard to be able to get ahead, with all their household expenses paid.

It is for this reason that Estela is applying for a loan at Integral. With it, she will be able to buy a larger quantity of food products, such as basic grains, bread, crackers, eggs, and butter, among other items. These items are very necessary in homes and are the most sold items in this area. This will permit her to improve her profit margins, making the business more profitable for her.
