María Concepción's story

María Concepción, age 69, lives in her own house with her beloved daughter. She devotes herself to making clothes in her shop together with her daughter.

She has worked all of her life in order to give her family a different quality of life. She continues struggling in order to continue earning her daily bread, and this business is her main source of income. María is an incredible woman. In spite of her age, she does not get tired of working, and she continues working hard to earn the income necessary to survive.

A lot of people give her good references because she is a hard-working, responsible, devoted, and, above all, charismatic woman. All of this has allowed her to win the trust of a lot of people who prefer her business more each day.

She has made the decision to request this loan from Integral to buy fabric, elastic, thread, and buttons, etc. This will allow her to take on a greater demand, which will consequently increase her sales and her income. She hopes to have favorable results that will allow her to improve her quality of life and that of her family.
