Sandra Idalia's story

Sandra Idalia, 24, lives with her life companion, Roberto, and their 8-year-old son. She sells ‘atoles’ [corn based beverages] made with rice, pineapple, corn and ‘poleada’ [hot drink made with flour and milk], among others. She’s had the business for several years and has acquired much experience that makes it possible for her to earn higher profits. Her small business is located in a very strategic spot with lots of passersby. She has a large, regular clientele because people prefer her because of the quality of her products, her good prices and above all for the excellent service.

Sandra is a woman who is dedicated to her work and determined to get ahead. She strives daily to reach success. Like all good merchants, she wants to increase production but needs capital to do so which is why she’s asking Integral for a loan to buy cereals, rice, pineapple, corn, cinnamon, etc. Sandra Idalia has good payment references and is sure that she will be able to repay the loan as scheduled while at the same time provide her family with better quality of life.
