Dora Del Carmen's story

Dora del Carmen, 48, has a daughter and lives with her sister. She sells personal care products such as lotions, cosmetics, creams and other items. She also works as a seamstress to help cover household expenses and has been in business for quite some time, which has given her much experience in sales and sewing. She is very well-known in the area and has many customers because of the quality of her products, good prices and excellent service.

Dora is dedicated to her work. Every day she gets up with the hope of improving her situation and working toward a prosperous future. She knows that only with effort and dedication she will be successful, and will not give up until she makes it. Over the last few months demand has increased and she wants to take advantage of this by increasing her investment. She does not have sufficient capital and therefore is requesting a loan through INTEGRAL to buy creams, lotions, cosmetics and fabric wholesale. Dora del Carmen has a good credit record and is very responsible. She promises to pay the loan back on time, while offering her family a better quality of life.
