Maria Elena's story

Maria Elena, 44, lives in her own home with her life partner, Herber, and their 3 daughters. She has a business selling coconuts that is located in a very busy spot. She has had this small business for a number of years, and so has valuable experience in retail trade that allows her to obtain the best earnings. She is very well-known in the neighborhood, and she already has a lot of customers who prefer her business because of the quality products that she has. In addition, she offers affordable prices and unequalled service, and is always ready to serve her customers. Maria is a woman who is very dedicated to her work. She is energetic and very tenacious, and she is always out in front of the situation, seeking alternatives that will help her to find a path to success. She knows that this way she will have a more prosperous future.

Like all good merchants, she wants to make a new investment to expand her business. However, she lacks the capital to do this. For this reason, she is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL that will allow her to buy coconuts at wholesale. Maria Elena has good credit references, and is very responsible. She is certain that she will be able to pay off the debt, and at the same time bring economic security to her household.
