A loan of $1,600 helped to buy roof tiles, cement, steel and floor tiles.

Luis Alonso's story

Luis Alonso is 55, and lives with his life partner and their children. He sells honey, and owns beehives in which honey-producing bees are gathered, as can be seen in the photo.

He has a great deal of experience in this business, as he has several years of working in it. He is well known in the area, as they know that he is a good neighbor and a good businessman. That is why he has a large clientele.

For some time, his house has had several repair issues. He needs to fix them, but does not have sufficient capital for such improvements. That is why he is applying to Integral for a loan to buy roof tiles, cement, steel, and floor tiles, in order to carry out improvements.

Luis Alonso is a responsible and very dedicated to his household. He wants his family to live in suitable conditions, and he is confident that he will be able to take responsibilty for repaying the loan, because he has good credit references. His honey sales provide him with enough to cover the obligation he is about to take on. At the same time he is confident that in this way he will be able to transform his home into a decent place to live.
