A loan of $600 helped to buy cashews to sell.


Maria Filomena's story

Maria Filomena, 44, is a humble, hardworking person living with her husband and daughter who works as a babysitter to be able to partially pay for her studies. María works selling cashews; she has a stand in the central market in the place where she lives and she has regular customers who buy from her at wholesale.

In order to buy the nuts she then resells, she has to travel to a town outside the department she lives in which makes getting them difficult; she does this task twice a week. María is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL in order to have money needed to buy more cashews and be able to travel to the place where she buys them so she can save quite a bit of money this way which is of great benefit for her home.
