Juan Francisco's story

Juan Francisco, 35 years old, lives in his home in a semi-urban area with his beloved family which is made up of his loved wife of 35 years and his adored daughter. Juan is a responsible, hard-working, and above all very entrepreneurial man. Several years ago he managed to establish a small store in his home residence which has allowed him to give his family their daily bread. Keeping the business going has not been easy, expresses Juan, as in the area where he resides there are other businesses that compete with his store, and day by day there are more businesses that by one way or another are gaining ground in the area and consequently taking way customers in their favor. But for Juan this is not an obstacle but rather a challenge since this has made him be alert to the changes in the market. He counts on many advantages since he has a lot of experience and moreover, has already won the trust of his neighbors. The most important thing to him is that his customers are satisfied, which is why he always puts a great deal of effort to have everything they need. Juan is a daring and safe man, and does not fear any challenge. All of this has motivated him to apply to Integral for a loan with the faith in God that in this way he will manage to keep his business running for many more years. With the loan he plans to buy a variety of store items like drinks, rice, sugar, beans, detergent, oil, candy, etc. so that his customers continue to prefer him because of his excellent service. In this way, he hopes to be able to obtain a better opportunity in life for him as well as for his family.
