Vania Elizabeth's story

Vania Elizabeth lives in a house that’s hers with her family group which is composed of her grandparents, two children and a niece. She sells various products in her mini-store that she’s managed to set up at home. She sells a variety of items like cosmetics, articles of clothing, shoes, stationery goods, baby clothes, etc.

She is an incredible woman who stands out for being hardworking, responsible and above all enterprising. She has worked for a long time to move her family, who daily demand more from her, forward. Her business is her main source of income since she’s the only one that works to bring daily bread home. For her, the most important thing is that her family has the necessary resources to survive. This is what pushes her to continue working hard in order not to neglect her work and continue earning profits in her mini store which to date have been what’s allowed her to keep her family afloat. She has some regular customers who prefer her because she’s an exemplary woman who has known how to support her family and move her business forward with her charisma and hard work.

She has decided to invest in her business buying a variety of things like: articles of clothing, cosmetics, toys, etc. This is the reason why she’s asking Integral for a loan since she does not have the necessary income to do it on her own. The objective is to stock her business with a variety of items that will attract more customers so that sales and income will increase and she can reach her dream of providing her family with better living conditions.

It’s worth stressing that she is profoundly grateful to Integral because they extended a hand to her previously with another loan she requested to invest in the business so that it can grow.
