Douglas Eliseo's story

Douglas Eliseo is 46 years old and lives with his family in their own house. He has a store where he sells staple goods like beans, bread, milk, eggs, soap, and other items. He has had this business for several years and it has given him a lot of sales experience that allows him to make better profits. He is very well known in the area and has customers who prefer him for his quality, good prices, and excellent service. Douglas is a man who is dedicated to his work and very motivated, with a great desire to always get ahead. He is always on the look out for new opportunities that could lead to success. He never thinks about giving up because he knows that to do so would mean snuffing out his dreams. Like any merchant, one of Douglas' greatest goals is to expand his business, but he does not have sufficient capital to do so. In order to achieve his goal, he is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL to buy basic grains, candies, bread, instant products, drinks, soap, etc. Douglas Eliseo has good credit references, is responsible, and assures that he will be able to pay off his debt. At the same time, he has faith that he will be able to bring economic security to his home.
