María's story

María S. O. is 60 years old. She is a hardworking woman who works day to day to get ahead and improve in every way possible. She lives with her husband, her daughter and her two minor grandchildren, who are in school. María has a store where she sells basic products such as: bottled water, propane gas, bread, milk, and more. The store is located in her house, which is in Santa María, in the department of Usulután. Maria has had this business for five years. She has gotten it ahead little by little, diversifying it as much as she has been able, since it is very difficult. Most of the profits are used for family expenses. This is the reason that María is asking for a loan from Integral through which she can buy a greater quantity of edible products, and items that are basic necessities for the home. María is someone who dreams of improving her economic condition, and that is why she is hoping to much improve her business.
