Santos's story

Santos is 61 years old and lives in her own house with one of her children, who works with her in the business. She makes a living selling staple products. She is conscientious and positive, and a good administrator. She has worked many years in this business, and as a result she has succeeded in establishing four kiosks which are close to one another. She distributes a large variety of products there, and customers are asking for her products with increased frequency.

The location of her business is in the municipal market in the area where she lives. She is very well-known in the area and thanks to her experience and good service, she has gained the confidence of a lot of people and can count on many regular customers.

She has expressed satisfaction and gratitude with this institution since it has helped her in the past to increase her kiosk openings. She has decided to invest in one of her kiosks, where she distributes primarily medicines of all kinds, among which the people can find pain killers, alcohol, a variety of vitamins, etc.

She is requesting this loan from Integral in order to invest in the purchase of a variety of products for health, such as a selection of pills, gauze, alcohol, vitamins, etc. so that her business is well-stocked and the customers can find what they are looking for. As a result, she will be able to build her relationship with those customers and attract new ones. She hopes to increase her income, which will allow her to improve her quality of life and that of her family.
