Ingris Yaneth's story

Ingris Yaneth did not have the opportunity to go to school and get an education the way every child should. Instead, she works and at the moments that is how she feeds her family. She is 21 years old, lives with her husband, and children who are her main motivation when it comes to working. For a living she makes and sells beautiful hammocks. She makes hammocks of all different sizes and sells them at various prices. With this business she is able to maintain her family since she is one of main financial contributors of her household. She is well known in her area and many people are happy and satisfied with the service she offers. She has some stable clients. Many clients make orders with anticipation. Her wish is to continue receiving income from this business since it is one of the main sources of income she counts on. Taking all of this into account she decided to request this loan to INTEGRAL to invest in her hammock business and increase sales by having more hammocks to sell. She will use the loan to buy material (thread) and pay labor for producing the hammocks. She will use the extra income to pay off the loan and continue supporting her home.
