María Luisa's story

María Luisa is thirty nine years old. She lives with her four children. She grows corn and beans and has a lot of experience, which allows her to obtain the best harvests. Her cropland is located in a canton near to the place she lives. She sells innearby communities and has a lot of customers because they know that what she sells is of a good quality and at really accesible prices. She is also known for having good service. María is a visionary and very hardworking woman. She is always awaiting new opportunities for a better future. With the previous harvest she experienced some losses due to bad weather and she wants to recover now in 2012. She wants to invest to increase production but she needs capital. That is why she is asking INTEGRAL for a loan that will allow her to buy corn and bean seeds, fertilizer, insecticide, etc. María Luisa has a good credit history. She is sure that she can pay off the debt and hopes that she can give her family a better life.
