Ada Marina
Ada Marina is fifty years old. She lives together with her life partner and their two children. Her work is buying and selling clothing: skirts, pants, dresses --everything for women, men and children. She has been a merchant for many years, selling as a mobile vendor. She has a lot of experience with sales, which has helped her to build a large customer base. She is well known in the community where she lives and in the surrounding area, and people like to buy from her because the products she sells are of the best quality and her prices are affordable. In addition, she offers excellent service. Ada is an enterprising woman, dedicated to her work, honest, and above all a dreamer. She is always looking for opportunities which will allow her to have a more prosperous future, and she will not rest until she has achieved this. Like all good merchants, she wants to expand her business, but she does not have sufficient capital; for that reason, she is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL that will allow her to buy clothing on a wholesale basis. Ada Marina has good credit references and is taking responsibility for paying off her debt, while at the same time offering her family a better quality of life.
