Ana Arabela's story

Ana Arabela is sixty years old and lives with her children in her own home. She makes a living selling food, breakfast, and lunch. She sells fried plantains, beans, cream, soup, grilled beef, salad, and drinks, among other items. Her business is located in her home and she's had it for several years. With time she has gained a lot of experience in the kitchen and with sales. She has a lot of customers as she prepares the most exquisite dishes in the area. People prefer her because everything is very hygienic, made with the best quality raw materials, at affordable prices, and has the fastest service. Ana is a woman who loves her work and devotes herself to it day after day because she knows that only if she puts in her best effort and motivation will she reach success. One of her biggest dreams is to expand her business. Now that they've increased sales she wants to take advantage of this and invest in supplies for production. For this reason they are requesting a loan from Integral that will allow her to buy basic grains, meat, sausage, dairy products, vegetables, drinks, etc. Ana Arabela is very responsible and has excellent credit references for which reason she is assured that she will be able to pay the debt and at the same time has the certainty that she will give her family a better life.
