Aida Nelly's story

Aída Nelly is 38 years old. She lives with her husband, who is a very hard worker, and their two children, who are in school. Aída has a store where she sells a variety of products and essential goods. It is set up in her home, which is an advantage because it allows her to tend to it all day seven days a week, do housework, and take care of her children. She loves everything she does and it has also allowed her to have a fixed income.

Aída is requesting a loan from Integral so that she can better stock her store. She will purchase food products such as flour, instant soup, milk, bread, and other products like sweets and drinks. Aída's greatest desire is being able to expand her business so that her sales increase and to turn what started out as a small business try-out into the best business in the area.
