María Fémina's story

María Fémina is 53 years old and lives in her own home together with her 67-year-old life partner who is a farmer. María has been working for a long time on a stall in the town market in her area. She sells a variety of basic household products and cereals. Thanks to God and her own hard work, she has managed to position her business in the market. It has a good reputation and is very accessible. It is a well-established business and many people come to it because they always find what they are looking for. María is very well known and many people provide good references for her because she is noted for being an entrepreneurial woman who is committed to her work. She has taken the decision to invest in her business so that she can keep it well stocked and attract more customers. This will allow her to increase her sales levels and her income, thereby enabling her to enjoy better living conditions.

María has decided to request this loan from INTEGRAL to invest in her business, buying products such as rice, sugar, beans, corn, soap, oil, paper, eggs, salt and other products her customers would like. She believes that this will enable her to achieve her dream.
