Jesús's story

Jesús has worked all her life to be able to take care of her family. She lives with her two daughters and her son. Thanks to the support and upbringing which she has given her children, all three are now hardworking people who work hard to alleviate the economic situation which becomes ever more difficult. In view of the fact that the economic situation was so difficult and that she had been the sole breadwinner for a long time, she decided many years ago to start up a small bazaar in her home, where she sells a variety of items such as stationery, toys, baby clothes, etc. This has been her main source of income which has allowed her to feed her family every day for many years. Despite the fact that her children now contribute to the household expenses she doesn't want to give up her business, as she is a hardworking woman who in spite of her 67 years does not tire of working and who has not considered giving up the income from her bazaar. She is requesting this loan from INTEGRAL to invest in buying merchandise such as a variety of toys, baby clothes, notebooks, pencils, pens, glue, paper, etc. With this, she hopes to boost her business and continue making the profits which have helped her to support her family until now.
