A loan of $1,000 helped to buy stock merchandise for her store.

Bartola Inés's story

Bartola Inés, 38, is very well known as a responsible, kind, hardworking but above all enterprising woman. With help from her husband she supports her home given that both of them work hard to provide sustenance for their children.

She owns the house she lives in and that she’s set up her business in. The business consists of a small store where she sells a variety of articles like snacks, rice, sugar, beans, soft-drinks, bread and other basic staple items that are attractive to customers. Thanks to the good care and service she’s managed to win over the trust of her neighbors who state that they are very satisfied with the service she provides. The business is located on one of the zone’s main streets.

She requests this loan to give her business a push. She foresees that with an increase in inventory she will succeed in increasing movement in the store since customers are making demands and she could earn a bit more income that will allow her to continue collaborating with the home’s economy.

It’s because of this that she approached INTEGRAL so that it will give her the necessary support she needs to buy soft-drinks, bread, cereals, snacks, oil, macaroni, beauty products and others hoping to improve income levels and thus cover her family’s basic needs.
