María Edulia's story

María Edulia A. D. A. is a 34 year old single mother who lives with her two children, aged 12 and 13. They live in the town of Soyapango. María owns her own store where she sells various products such as snacks, bread, toilet paper, pills and some types of detergent. Despite having 8 years of experience, she invests very little in the business, since most of the earnings are used to support the home. That is why she needs some help to improve it. She is asking Integral for a loan with which she can have enough money to be able to buy a larger quantity of products such as eggs, juice, milk, bread, and more snacks from different brands. That way, her customers will have a wider variety to choose from and will buy more. María is a very dedicated to what she does and that is why she wants to grow her business and offer a better service where her customers can feel comfortable shopping and thus she can improve her income. This would be a great benefit for her family.
