Tito Balmore's story

Tito Balmore is 24 years old and lives with his 56 year old mother in her home. Her mother helps out with the household expenses, as she receives remittances every month. Tito did not have the opportunity to finish his education so he decided to learn the trade of stylist, which allows him to earn an honest living. He started his beauty salon in his home a few years ago. He provides various services including cuts, tints, makeup, washes, presses, etc. Many people prefer him because he provides good service at good prices. The most important thing for Tito is that his customers leave satisfied with their services. This business allows him to earn a living because he doesn’t have another source of income.

He has decided to expand his beauty salon and buy tints, chemicals, and cosmetics, now that he is getting more customer demands and wants to provide better service. He decided to request a loan through INTEGRAL since he doesn’t have the money to make this investment. He expects that through his work and this loan, he will be able to increase his business and be able to repay the loan and also improve his family’s financial situation.
