José Luis's story

José Luis, 50, lives in his own home with his wife. He has worked all his life to be able to have access to a better quality of life. Through great effort, he has succeeded in establishing a small carpentry shop in his home since he has no other place for his business, due to economic restraints.

José’s business is profitable because he has worked for a long time to get ahead and provide food each day for himself and his dear wife. His wish is to see his business flourish and, for this to happen, he has decided to request this loan from Integral in order to buy necessary basic materials such as wood, glue and tools in order to continue keeping his business a step ahead of the competition. In addition, he wants to be able to increase his income and he trusts in God that it will happen. In this way, he hopes to improve his quality of life and that of his family.
