Catalina Arely's story

Catalina Arely L., 52 years old, lives with her husband, who is 73 years old, in the department of San Vicente. Catalina has a business selling beauty products such as perfume, body and hair creams, and other items. Many of these products are marketed through a catalog, and are sold on credit. This is the strategy Catalina uses in order to secure her sales, although in many cases, it's rather risky. For this reason, she is asking for a loan to buy more cosmetics, creams, and perfumes. To obtain these items, she has to pay for them in cash upfront. This is why it's very important that she obtain the loan from Integral. It will allow her to increase her business' inventory and improve her family's living conditions. Catalina is a very hard-working woman, and has always worked as hard as possible in order to have a stable life.
