María Josefina's story

María Josefina lives with her life companion, Víctor, and their three children. She sells chicken tamales and ‘atol’ [corn based beverage]. She’s been in business several years and has attained much sales experience. She’s very well-known in the area because she makes the most delicious tamales and the most exquisite atoll. She has a large regular clientele who prefer her because they know everything she makes is with top quality ingredients at affordable prices in addition to excellent service.

María is an active woman who is devoted to her work. She has many dreams to reach and is working her hardest to do so. Her greatest secret is perseverance; she knows that will lead her to success.

Like all good merchants, she wants to increase business but needs a new investment but does not have enough capital to do so which is why she’s asking Integral for a loan to buy corn dough, chicken, corn on the cob, vegetables, etc. María Josefina has good payment references and is sure that she will be able to repay the loan while at the same time has faith that she’ll be able to provide a better quality of life for her family.
