A loan of $650 helped to buy perishable items.


Natividad De Mercedes's story

Natividad D. Mercedes F. D. R., 62, lives with her son in Soyapango, San Salvador department, in her own home. Natividad has a general store where she stocks basic grains, instant soups, bread, coffee, milk and other products common to daily household use. She also sells clothing, shoes and cosmetics like: perfumes, lipsticks, creams, etc.

Natividad must work very hard every day in order to get ahead because she doesn’t get any financial support from anyone. This is why she very much wants to have a loan with Integral so that she can buy greater amounts of perishable items for the store as well as to buy new styles of shoes and a larger assortment of clothes.

She expects to see her business grow and become more stable so that she can have the peace of mind she wants for her old age.
