Marta Elisa's story

Marta Elisa, 44, has lived in her own house with her son for 30 years. She is an incredible woman, as she does everything possible to earn the daily bread for her family. Marta makes a living making tailored clothing. The business is located at her own house, for which she arranged a space where she has put a sewing machine, a cutting table, a clothes press, and a piece of furniture where she places her garments.

Every day she gets up very early to complete her housework and then see to her business. Thanks to her 16 years of experience in her business and her good performance in it, she has gained the trust of her neighbors, who prefer her more each day. She offers quality and good prices in her tailored garments. Like any visionary woman with wishes to better herself, she has decided to apply for this loan with Integral to invest in the purchase of materials (cloth, elastic, buttons, thread, etc.) to make her tailored clothing garments. She wants to obtain favorable business results which will allow her to improve the quality of her life and that of her family.
