A loan of $500 helped to buy clothes.

Ana Cristina's story

Ana Cristina lives in a house of her own with her family group composed of her 23-year-old husband and year-and-a-half old daughter. Ana is an exemplary woman who rises very early every day to do her household chores and then go out to various areas around where she lives offering her products. She works very hard and is always thinking of ways to help with the family economy since her husband’s income is insufficient to cover all household expenses which are higher every day. It’s worth stressing that her husband works as a bricklayer and often is out of work because he has to wait for projects to happen that he can offer his services to so he does not have steady income.

For Ana, the most important thing is that her family we well and able to enjoy better conditions than she’s had. All of this compels her to work very hard and to find ways to make her business grow. Based on the above, she’s made the decision to ask INTEGRAL for a loan to invest in the business buying a variety of clothes like blouses, skirts, dresses, pants and other items to attract more customers and meet their needs. She trusts that based on this decision she will succeed in increasing profits and be able to improve her and her family’s quality of life.
