Rita Morena's story

Rita Morena, age 53, lives with her two children in her own house. She has a bakery, and she makes a variety of bread. She makes sweet breads, rolls, quesadillas, tarts, cakes, pastries, and French bread, among others. She has been in this business for several years, and this has gifted her with a lot of experience. This allows her to get better bread with an exquisite taste.

The business is located in the place where she lives, and she already has a lot of customers. People prefer her because her product is first class at accessible prices. However, above all, they prefer her excellent service. Rita is a very hard-working woman.

She starts her work very early, and she puts forth all of her effort and dedication every day. She knows that at the end of her work day she will be able to share time with what is most important to her, her family.

Like all merchants, she wants to increase her business. However, she does not have the capital to do so. That is why she is requesting a loan from Integral. She will use the loan to buy flour, sugar, yeast, and milk, etc. Rita Morena has a good payment record, and she is sure that she will be able to settle her debt and also provide her household with financial security.
