Silvia Dinora's story

Silvia Dinora, age 34, has lived in her sister’s house for 19 years. She lives with her three children; two of them go to school. Silvia Dinora has devoted herself to the business for a lot of years.

Thanks to her dedication and discipline she has managed to actively maintain a small store in her home. She is an exemplary woman because she alone has managed to get her children ahead. She continues working in order to give them the best.

The location of her business is very strategic. It is in a very busy zone with easy access, and she now has a lot of customers. However, she is an enterprising woman. She wants to stock her small store so that it will be more attractive, and so that the customers will prefer her store. Also, she wants to take advantage of the Christmas season because that is when she sells the most.

This has made her decide to request this loan from Integral. She will use the loan to buy a variety of products for her store. She will buy things like sweets, detergents, sugar, rice, beans, oil, paper, sweet breads, and others that manage to bring more customers.

By doing this she hopes to fulfill her dream of seeing her store stocked and having a lot of customers who prefer her because she has everything they need. Also, she hopes to get greater income, which would allow her access to a better life opportunity.
