Elsi De Jesús's story

Elsi de Jesús is thirty-seven years old and lives with her life partner in a house of her own. She has a store where she sells items such as cereal, milk, bread and eggs among others. Her business is located in a very strategic place because of the area it is in. That area is usually crowded which has caused Elsi to have a higher demand at her store every day. Customers prefer to buy from her because she sells high quality products at very affordable prices. Also, people who visit her store are very pleased with the service provided. The daily profit she makes is very favorable, but she wants to increase it in order to gain some more cash flow. Elsi is a persevering, cheerful and very responsible person. She thinks the race to success is not won by the one who starts in the first place, but by the one who gets to the end. This is why she decided to request INTEGRAL for a loan that will allow her to buy basic grains, ready-to-eat products, soft drinks, candy, sweet bread, medicine, etc. Elsi de Jesús is confident she will be able to keep the business running and be constant with every repayment of her loan. Also she has faith in the fact that this will allow her to bring financial security to her home.
