Flor De María's story

At the age of 44, Flor de María works hard to support her family and provide daily sustenance to her home. She lives with her 42-year-old husband and her three children who are 22, 18 and 11 years old.

Flor works very hard in her business which consists of an eatery where she sells a variety of dishes. Her business is located in the center of the capital, a very busy location with many passersby.

With much effort she’s providing her children with schooling because for her what’s most important is that her children are well-prepared so that in future they are able to have better opportunities than those she and her husband have had. It’s worth mentioning that her oldest child is attending university and this situation fills her with pride and gives her even more desires to work to help him in the final stretch.

Based on the above, she’s decided to ask Integral for a loan to invest in her business purchasing raw materials needed (rice, meat, chicken, beans, vegetables, fruit, etc.) to make the delicious, hygienic dishes to give the business a push that will allow her to improve sales and continue earning income that is essential to provide sustenance to her home and to attain her dream. She’s sure that with the product of her profits she will be able to responsibly assume payment of her loan.
