She has a lot of customers who prefer her business because she always has delicious food at affordable prices, made with quality ingredients and with unequalled service. Santos is a woman who is dedicated to her work. She is active, determined, and very tenacious; day by day she strives to achieve her goals and she will not rest until she achieves the success she so greatly desires because she knows that it will bring a more prosperous future.

Like all good storekeepers, she wants to increase the business and make a new investment, but for this she needs capital for backing. For this reason, she is asking Apoyo Integral for a loan which will allow her to buy maize, beans, cheese, corn, chicken, meat, etc. Santos has good references to vouch for her payment history and is very responsible; she guarantees that she will pay off the debt and, at the same time, believes the loan will bring economic security to her home.
