María Del Transito's story

María del Transito, 54, lives with her son Roberto. She has a store where she sells essentials like beans, milk, bread, eggs, and chicken, among other things. It is the most well-known store by the people in the community and the best-stocked. She has lots of experience with sales and has gained many regular customers who prefer her for the excellent quality of the products, the good prices, and above all, the excellent service.

In addition to this activity, María works raising and selling cattle and growing corn. This helps her to cover home expenses and earn income for future investments. She is a woman who is dedicated to her work, lively, and courageous. She is always waiting for new opportunities to present themselves and give her the chance to make a better future doing what she enjoys. Like all good store-keepers, she wants to grow the store, but she need the money to back it. This is why she is applying to INTEGRAL for a loan that allows her to buy grains, sweets, bread, eggs, drinks, chicken, soaps, etc. María del Transito has a good record of payment and she is responsible for paying off the loan. She also has faith that she will be able to give her family a better quality of life.
