A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase basic grains, candy, drinks, bread and soap.


Arcela's story

Arcela is 47 years old and lives with her family. She has a store in her residence where she sells staples such as rice, beans, milk and bread, among other items. She has had more customers recently since everything she sells is of very good quality, her prices are low and her service is first-rate. Arcela is a very active woman and is always ready to fulfill her objectives. Her biggest dream is to expand her business and she knows that she will be able to do so only with constant effort and work. Consequently she is applying to INTEGRAL for a loan that will enable her to purchase in bulk the basic grains, candy, drinks, bread and soap that her customers demand. She is confident that in this way she will be able to provide a better quality of life for her family.
