A loan of $500 helped to buy perfume.


María Dolores's story

María Dolores is 40 years old and lives in her own house with her family, which is made up of her life partner and their three children, ages 18, 10 and 7. All three children are in school, and they are María's inspiration.

She sells perfumes for both men and women. Her business is located in her house, and she has been able to adapt the business to the facilities in her house so she can attract the attention of her customers. In the area where she lives, María is very well-known for being a hardworking, responsible woman and above all an honest woman. Many people prefer her products since she offers variety, quality and good prices.

This business is María's main source of income. That motivates her to be very attentive and always watching the business's direction. In other words, she is always looking to be a step ahead of the competition so her business will be the area leader in perfumes. All this has led her to ask INTEGRAL for a loan. She is very grateful to the institution for the economic help it gave her in the past to start her business.

This time she is asking for the loan to buy a variety of perfumes so her customers always find what they are looking for and so they are satisfied with her service. In this way she hopes to sell more products and increase her income, which will allow her to offer better living conditions to her family, especially her children, whose needs grow everyday.
