Irma Yolanda's story

Irma Yolanda, 38, lives in her own house with her family. Her husband is 44 and of her three children aged 5, 13 and 18, the two eldest are in school. Irma works in retail, selling a variety of products like beans, rice, coffee, oil, detergent, paper, candy, condiments, etc. She has lots of time to dedicate to her business and many people prefer her store because she is honest, hard working, and most of all, charismatic. She has many ideas for her business that’s she’s been implementing little by little. Thanks to her creativity in business, she’s been able to keep her business active for many years. She’s a very dignified, confident woman and her neighbors give her good references. Lately, Irma has been thinking about stocking up her store with a bigger variety of products in order to attract more customers and fill demands. This idea was the impetus to request a loan with INTEGRAL to buy a variety of products like sweet buns, oil, milk, rice, coffee, beans, candy, detergent and other articles that would bring in the customers. This is how she hopes to achieve her dream of improving her family’s quality of life.
