María Edith
María Edith is 46, and lives with her three children. She sells tortillas, grilled chicken and meat, and has owned her business for several years. She is proud of the fact that in all this time, she has acquired valuable experience that allows her to improve each day, so that her customers are satisfied.

Her stand is located in a very strategic area, as there is no similar business in the neighborhood. It is for this reason that she has acquired a large clientele. Also, people know that everything she sells is top quality, well-priced, with very fast service.

In addition to this, María sells products by catalog, such as creams, perfumes, etc. which helps her further contribute to the household expenses. She is a visionary woman, with a strong desire to succeed and fulfill her dreams.

One of these is to make her business grow, but she needs to invest in supplies, and this is why she is applying to Integral for a loan that will allow her to buy corn at wholesale, chicken, beef, as well as catalog products.

María is very responsible, with good credit references. She is sure she will be able to repay the debt and at the same time provide her family with a better quality of life.
