María Del Carmen's story

María del Carmen, 41, lives with her family group composed of her life companion and their children. She sells shoes and sandals for men, women and children; she has several styles that are very much in vogue. She sells from place to place throughout her neighborhood and in adjacent municipalities. She has quite a large number of regular customers because people seek her out because of the quality of her products, her affordable prices and above all for the unequalled service she offers; she is always at her customers’ service.

María is an active woman who is dedicated to her work. She is tenacious and above all a dreamer which is most important. She wants to reach each and every one of her goals which is why she works day to day with much effort and dedication because she knows that this is the only way to attain success.

Like all good merchants, she wants to expand the business in order to increase profits. She needs to invest but does not have sufficient capital to do so which is why she’s asking INTEGRAL for a loan to be able to buy shoes and sandals at wholesale. María del Carmen has good payment references and she takes on the commitment of the debt while at the same time hoping to be able to give her family the quality of life they so deserve.
