Ruth Elizabeth's story

Ruth Elizabeth lives with her partner and two children. Currently, she makes a living from making sportswear for men, ladies and children. Her clothing shop is located in her own house. When she is not making cloths she grows corn, beans, rice and vegetables.

She is a very happy person that every morning rises with enthusiasm and joy to do her work. She is a well known by the neighbors for being responsible, collaborator, cheerful and dedicated to her work.

Her wish is to grow her business by giving it good maintenance and by using the best materials and for this reason she is requesting a loan to Integral (Field Partner). In order to do a better work and be more efficient, she wants to buy a sewing machine, scissors, needles, fabric, among other things. As a result, she would be more efficient when it comes to the delivery of her products. She trusts that she will pay back the loan because thanks to God, she has a good customer base. She looks ways to give her family a better life.
