María Arminda's story

María Arminda, 56, lives with her life partner. For over ten years, she has dedicated herself to selling shellfish and chicken by the pound. She raises her own chickens because this way she earns more profits. Her years of working have given her great sales experience that allows her to continuously improve her work. She has earned many customers, as people prefer her because all of the merchandise she sells is trustworthy and of top quality, at accessible prices, and above all, because of her excellent service. María is an active woman, dedicated to her work and capable of achieving all of the goals she proposes. She is always looking for opportunities that could open the path to success, and she does not think about giving up until she has reached her goal. Like any good merchant, she wants to expand her business, but in order to do so she needs capital support. That is why she is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL. This loan will allow her to buy shellfish, chickens, concentrated chicken feed, and corn. María Arminda has good credit references and impeccable morals, so she is certain she will be able to pay off her debt and at the same time, she has hope that she will bring economic security to her home.
