Lorena Leticia
Lorena Leticia, 37, lives in her own home with her family group, comprised of her husband and her children. Lorena works selling dairy products. She has been doing this work for a long time and thanks to God and to her hard work she has managed to keep it productive for a long time. This is very important to her and her family since it is one of their main sources of income. Lorena is an exemplary woman who does everything in her power to feed her family [give her family their daily bread] .

She is very well known in the area and many people prefer her because she always has the best cheese in the area. Besides, the prices are accessible to everyone.

Her dream is to give her family a better quality of life, the reason she doesn't stop working, since her family is everything to her.

This has motivated her to request this loan from Integral to invest in her business by buying an appropriate table for making cheese, since at the moment she doesn't have a place that allows her to speed up production. She also needs the loan to buy the necessary materials (containers, molds, rennet tablets, pieces of cloth, etc.) to make cheese, cream, cottage cheese, etc.

The goal of all this is to improve her customer service, since this way she will be able to keep her business productive for much longer and she will be able to continue fighting for her dream. She trusts in God that she will have good results.

Lorena Leticia de 37 años de edad, habita en casa propia junto a su grupo familiar el cual está conformado por su esposo y sus hijos. Lorena se dedica a la elaboración y venta de lácteos. Tiene mucho tiempo de dedicarse a esta actividad y gracias a Dios y a su arduo trabajo ha logrado mantenerlo activo por mucho tiempo, el cual es muy importante para ella y su familia ya que es uno de sus principales fuentes de ingresos. Ella es una mujer ejemplar la cual hace todo lo que esté en sus manos para llevar el pan de cada día a su familia. Es muy conocida en la zona y muchas personas la prefieren por tener siempre los mejores quesos en la zona. Además los precios están al alcance de todos. Su sueño es dar a su familia una mejor calidad de vida, razón por la cual no se cansa de trabajar ya que para ella su familia lo es todo. Esto la ha motivado a solicitar este crédito a INTEGRAL para invertir en su negocio en la compra de una mesa adecuada para la elaboración de los quesos ya que por el momento no cuenta con un lugar que le permita agilizar la producción. También necesita el crédito para comprar los materiales necesarios (recipientes, moldes, pastillas, mantas, etc.), para la elaboración de queso, crema, requesón, etc. Todo esto con el fin de mejorar el servicio que da a los clientes ya que de esta manera podrá mantener su negocio activo por mucho más tiempo y podrá seguir luchando por su sueño. Confía en Dios que tendrá buenos resultados.
