Juan José's story

Juan José lives in his own house with his family, consisting of his wife and children. Juan is a very hard-hard-working, dedicated, and responsible man. He has worked for 19 years to help his family get ahead in life. With a lot of effort and dedication he has managed to set up a small store in his home, where he sells a variety of goods, such as candy, cereal grains, detergent, vegetables etc. He has set up his business in his home, and because of the time he has to devote to it, he now has a lot of experience in this area. He has a good number of steady customers, who prefer him more every day, because he is a dedicated and especially charming man, who always tends his business with a lot of enthusiasm. Since he is an enterprising man, he has decided to apply to Integral for this loan. This is in order to invest in merchandise for stocking his business, taking advantage of the Christmas season that has already begun. This is a good opportunity to increase his sales. He wants the loan to buy rice, beans, candy, sweet breads, cooking oil, milk, a variety of condiments, and detergent. This way, he will be able to improve his quality of life, and that of his family. Day by day life becomes more difficult, and it is necessary to look for new ways of earning other income, in order to provide for all his family's needs.
