Mariana Luz's story

Mariana Luz, 47, lives with her children in their own house. She has a carpentry shop where, with her son's help, she makes all kinds of items from wood: tables and chairs, among other things. She has had the business for years and is well known by the local people because the quality of her work is excellent and she makes items that meet her customers' wishes at low prices. Mariana is an active, enterprising woman who wants to get ahead. She wants to take advantage of every opportunity that comes her way because she realizes this is the only way to succeed. In the past several weeks, she has taken losses on defective material and wants to make it up by reinvesting and increasing production; however, she needs capital. She is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL that will allow her to buy wholesale wood, nails, paint, varnish, etc. Mariana Luz has a good credit history and good references and is sure that she will be able to make her loan payments on time. At the same time, she hopes to offer her family financial security.
