A loan of $300 helped to buy corn wholesale.


Mariana De Jesus's story

Mariana is 50 years old and lives together with her son. She has a tortilla bakery located in her home. She has been in the business for a number of years and is very well known because there isn't much competition in her area. In addition, her tortillas are the warmest and most delicious. Her customers are loyal to her business because she makes her tortillas with top-quality ingredients, sells them at affordable prices and offers the quickest service. Mariana is an entrepreneurial woman who has a great desire to do well in life. She is always looking for new opportunities that will allow her to achieve success. She gets up very early every day to start her work. She knows that, as a result of all her hard work, her business will manage to grow. She has experienced a lot of demand and doesn't want to let her customers down. For this reason, she needs to increase her production and needs capital to invest in buying supplies. She is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL to buy corn wholesale. María is very responsible and definitely has the ability to repay her loan. She assures us that she will be able to repay her loan and, at the same time, offer her family a better quality of life.
