Eduardo's story

Eduardo lives with his spouse and their 14 year old son. He sells dairy products such as cheese, cream, and milk. He also sells vegetables such as tomatoes, onions, peppers, etc. For many years he has run a small business in the city marketplace in the east of the country, where he resides. He is well-known by his customers and by the other merchants in the marketplace because he is a very nice and friendly man. Furthermore, he sells high-quality products at reasonable prices. Eduardo is a visionary and has many future goals. He wants to reach all of his goals and he's very persistent. He wants to remain ahead of the competition and so he wants to invest in more merchandise but he needs money to do so (and only cash payments are accepted). Therefore, he is seeking a loan from INTEGRAL so that he can buy more dairy products such as cheese, cream, milk, cottage cheese, etc. With these items, he will be able to increase his earnings. Eduardo is a very responsible man with great references. He is certain that he will be able to repay the loan and at the same time he will be able to give his family a full life.
