María Edis's story

María Edis is 46 years old and lives with her two children. She cultivates corn and sells rice. She has several years of running this business and has gained a lot of experience in this area, which has allowed her to obtain valuable results from her harvests. Her fields are easily accessible and near to the highway and it has fertile soil good for planting. She conducts business in all the zones close to her community and has many clients who prefer her because she has what they need at reasonable prices as well as having an unequaled service. María is dedicated to her work, motivated and decisive, but above all, responsible. Her most valuable treasures are her family and her work, which is why she always strives for success. In her last harvest she experienced losses last year because of the bad weather but now is the time for sowing and she wants to recover and increase her production but she needs the capital to back her up. It is because of this she is asking for a loan from INTEGRAL, which will allow her to purchase corn seeds, rice, herbicide, insecticide and fertilizer, etc. María Edis has good references in regard to her payments and her moral character assures she will pay back her debt in the required amount of time while at the same time providing her family with a sense of economic stability.
