María Elena
María Elena, 34 years old, lives with her life partner and daughter in her own house. She has a clothing store, where she sells shirts, pants, skirts, and dresses, among other things. She is very well known in the area because she sells as a street vendor near to where she lives or in her own house. Furthermore, everything she sells is of very good quality and it has accessible prices.

María is a young and energetic woman; she is very dedicated to her work. She thinks that each person’s improvement is a process of transformation and development that helps you reach happiness. She already started this process, and that is why she requests a loan from INTEGRAL, which will allow her to purchase a variety of wholesale clothes, sandals, and shoes. Maria Elena has faith that, in this manner, she will be able to give her family a full life.
