Rosa María De La Paz's story

Rosa Maria, 52, lives with her husband and their three children. She sells vegetables - tomatoes, peppers, onions, among others - and also sells honey and coffee. She has been in this business for some years and has a lot of experience in sales. Her business is located in the town market and she has a lot of customers. People prefer her because she always has what they need, with a quality product and affordable prices, in addition to good service.

Rosa is an entrepreneurial woman with a great desire to get ahead. She is always looking out for new opportunities because she wants to be successful. For some time she has wanted to increase her business by investing in inputs, but she didn't have enough capital. For that reason she asks INTEGRAL for a loan to buy vegetables in bulk, honey and coffee. Rosa Maria has good references and is very responsible. She knows that she will be able to pay the debt and is also confident that her family will have a better quality of life.
