A loan of $700 helped to buy a sound system for his dance classes.

Mario Efrain's story

Mario Efrain is 36 years old and lives together with his parents: Mario and Blanca. Efrain has enjoyed dancing since he was very young and his love for this art increased as he got older. His desire to refine the art allowed him to set up a dance center in premises in the center of the town where he lives. Clients visit him and have healthy fun, doing aerobics or dancing a wide repertoire of musical styles that Efrain himself dances very well and leads as an instructor. The clients who visit his business dance to lose weight or simply to relax and escape their daily lives for a while.

Efrain's business is constantly improving thanks to the fact that his clients feel very happy and comfortable with this activity. Efrain would like to use the loan that he is requesting from INTEGRAL to buy a new sound system that will move his clients even more. As he says "they sweat out all the bad stuff that they bring with them and leave it here". He believes that, with this new investment, his clients will put him in touch with more friends and bring them along to enjoy a dance session in which people are delighted to be in perfect health.
