Petrona lives in a rented house with her family in a hot weather zone of the country. Her home is composed of her husband and two children. She is characterized as being a very hardworking, honest woman who is dedicated to her work. Her main inspiration is her beloved family because for her what’s most important is that her family has the best possible living conditions.

Petrona sells vegetables in a stand she’s managed to set up thanks to much effort and with help from God. Her business is located in a commercial zone that’s quite busy especially Petrona’s stand because she always has affordable prices and the best quality and freshest vegetables.

Lately, she’s noticed an increase in demand for her products and this is why she decided to ask INTEGRAL for a loan to buy an assortment of vegetables like: carrots, onions, potatoes, tomatoes, manioc and other products that will help her attract more customers. She has all her faith placed in God and trusts that she will attain the desired positive results from this decision and will be able to give her beloved family a better quality of life.
