A loan of $500 helped to buy essential goods, such as juices, sodas, and sweet bread.


Dolores's story

Dolores is 36 years old and she has a small business in her home where she sells essential goods, such as toothpaste, bread, glue, trash bags, and much more. Her business is the only one around her neighborhood and her two children, who are 11 and 12 years old, help her tend to the store. Thanks to the earnings she has generated from her business, Dolores can offer financial support to her husband, who works outside their home. Dolores is asking INTEGRAL for this loan so that she can make her store grow and so she can stock it with the products she needs to increase her earnings, such as juices, sodas, and sweet bread. She wants to invest in these things because they are what is most in demand in the area.
