Maritza Del Carmen
Maritza del Carmen, 36, lives with her life companion and children. She has several years of experience in agriculture, planting corn and beans on four manzanas of land close to her home. Her harvests are always very good, so she has many customers for her quality, well-priced merchandise. Her service is also unequaled; she always treats people well.

Maritza is energetic, dedicated to her work, and very much wants to achieve her dreams. One of these is to increase production during this planting season so that she can increase her profits. She needs capital to do this because her purchases must be paid for in cash. Therefore, she is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL, with which she will buy corn seed, beans, fertilizer, weed killer, tools, etc. Maritza del Carmen has a good credit history and credit references and feels certain that she will make her payments on time. She also knows that she will be able to give her family a better life.
