Sonia Yanira
Sonia Yanira lives with her beloved daughter in her own house. She sells a variety of fruits and drinks. She has a stand in a very strategic location at the edge of a street, where there is a lot of foot traffic.

Sonia has worked all her life to raise her dear family which depends solely on the income she earns in her business. She lives in very humble circumstances, but that does not limit her from continuing to work and struggle to help her family get ahead in life.

She is known for being friendly, responsible, and enterprising. Like every enterprising woman, she wishes to take advantage of the vacation period that is approaching, to invest in her business. This is with the aim of giving her customers a greater selection, given that on these days demand increases, and she wants to be prepared.

This is why she has taken the decision to apply to Integral for this loan, in order to buy a variety of fruits and drinks at wholesale, so that customers always find her business stocked when they visit it. This way she hopes to improve her level of sales and income, which will allow her to access better opportunities in life.
