María Luisa's story

María Luisa is 56 years old, and lives with her son. She sells clothes as a street vendor in different areas close to where she lives. María sells all types of clothes in different styles for women, men, boys and girls, such as skirts, blouses, and trousers among other things. She has many customers after her years working in this business. Recently, she has noticed an increase in her sales, as she has started selling in new areas. She has affordable prices, and her level of service is incomparable.

María Luisa is a woman with the desire to get ahead in life. For her, victory comes from the will and commitment that you put into your work. This is why she is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL which will allow her to buy skirts, trousers, blouses, T-shirts, etc. In this way, she can meet the demand from her newly discovered sales locations which are mainly cantons or hamlets, that is to say places that are mainly rural and far away from the cities, where even transportation is limited.

María Luisa has confidence that in this way she will be able to give her family a better quality of life.
