Yanira Del Carmen's story

Yanira del Carmen, 39, lives with her two children in a house that’s her property. Her business is a barber shop which with much effort and dedication she’s managed to establish and keep operating for a long time. She has very good references and thanks to her hard work has won over the trust of many people who prefer her more each day because she’s a hardworking, tenacious and above all, charismatic woman.

Her dream is to be able to give her family better living conditions especially to her beloved children who are currently attending school. She does not lose hope of being able to provide schooling for them and to see them become great professionals since this is the only way of offering them stability and better living conditions.

She has decided to ask Integral for this loan to invest in her small barber shop. She will buy mirrors and invest in chair repair because they are in poor condition. Her goal is to improve customer service so that they will feel motivated to want to return in the future and they can invite other customers so that her income will improve in order to access better economic conditions.
