María Ofelia's story

Maria Ofelia is 49, and lives with her daughters in an area busy with people. She has a store in her home where she sells basic household necessities such as beans, rice, bread, drinks, and other items. Lately demand has increased, as she sells top-quality products at really affordable prices; and the service is excellent.

Maria is a woman very devoted to her work, honest, with many dreams for the future. She believes that self-improvement comes not only with time, but also through desire, self-motivation, immediate action, planning, effort, and continual work.

She wants to see her business grow, and that is why she is applying to Integral for a loan that will allow her to buy staple grains, candy, bread, drinks, etc. Maria Ofelia has the confidence that in this way, she will be able to give her family a full life.
