Nancy Marlene
Nancy Marlene is 32 years of age and lives with her four children. She has worked selling goods in a store for many years. Her business is located in the market in the area where she lives, which is frequented by many people.

Nancy Marlene works very hard to help her children get ahead in life. This is because her husband does not live with them, and the little he provides is not enough to meet the basic household needs. In her business she sells a variety of staple goods, such as cereals, food, cleaning products, etc. She is well-known in the area as a woman who is determined, dedicated and responsible. She does all that is within her power to provide for her household on a daily basis.

Nancy Marlene has requested this loan from INTEGRAL to invest in her business by buying products for the store (cereals, oil, coffee, pasta, sugar, salt, cleaning products, etc.). This will encourage sales and will lead to an increase in her income. In this way she will be able to continue providing for her home, and fighting for a better quality of life for her and her family.
