Virginia Del Carmen's story

Virginia del Carmen is 66 years old and lives in her own home together with her nephew who is under her care. Virginia is characterized as being entrepreneurial, responsible but above all, charismatic. With a lot of dedication, she has managed to actively run a restaurant, which is her primary source of income. She has spent many years working on this business, so that now she is very experienced. Thanks to her charisma, she has gained the respect of many people in the area so that she already has several loyal customers. Virginia works very hard to be able to allow her nephew to get ahead since he is the only one that assists with the economy of their home. Her dream is to better her quality of life and that of her nephew, therefore she strives to keep her business functioning in the best way possible. She made the decision to seek this loan from Integral to invest it in the restaurant to buy the necessary inputs (vegetables, fruit, beans, rice, propane gas, etc.) to prepare the rich meals that each day she offers to her customers. All of this she does with the goal of increasing her demand which will permit her to increase her level of sales and income and consequently she will be able to realize her dream of giving her nephew a better life.
