Nancy Esmeralda's story

Nancy Esmeralda, 26, lives with her life companion, Noé, and her son Jonathan. She has a bakery where she sells all types of savory and sweet bread like cakes, turnovers, rolls and French bread, among others. She’s been in business for several years and has gained quite a bit of experience cooking. She leases the space for the bakery and it’s in a strategic location with many passersby. She’s acquired a large clientele who prefer her because of the quality, good prices and exceptional service; she’s always at her customers’ disposal.

Nancy is a woman who’s dedicated to her work; she’s active and very tenacious. She works to the maximum degree every day to earn a better future for her and her family; they are the most important things in her life.

Like all good merchants, Nancy wants to increase business because she knows that if she increases production, profits will increase too. But to do so she needs capital which is why she’s asked Integral for a loan to buy flour, sugar, yeast, sweetener, milk, eggs, etc. Nancy Esmeralda 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 will be able to bring economic security to her home.
