María Cristina
María Cristina P., 49, lives with her husband, son and mother in San Vicente Department. She has a stand in one of San Vicente’s Municipal Market’s main aisles that is quite heavily visited by local residents.

Maria Cristina is one of the most popular vendors because she’s known for being accommodating and, obviously, for having the best beverages and other products at the best prices.

This has motivated Maria to request a loan from INTEGRAL to buy more merchandise like water, fruit, sugar, bags and snacks, among others, to meet customer demand and at the same time reach one of her goals which is to make her business grow and provide her home with solvency that will give her family economic security.
