Maria Del Carmen's story

María del Carmen, 33, lives with her life companion and their children in a house of her own. She has a store where she sells basic staples like basic grains, bread, eggs, milk and soap, among others. She’s been in business for several years and has acquired valuable experience that has led to the best profits. The store is located at home in a neighborhood with many passersby. She already has a large clientele but her best, regular customers are her neighbors who prefer her because she has the best stocked store with quality products at accessible prices plus provides excellent service.

María is an energetic, determined, humble woman who is dedicated to her work; she’s always striving to attain a better future. Her greatest secret is the love for her work; she knows that only in that way will and with great effort will she attain the success she so desires.

Like all good merchants, she wants to expand her business but lacks sufficient capital to do so which is why she’s asking Integral for a loan to buy basic grains, bread, snacks, beverages, instant products, etc. María del Carmen has good payment references and unblemished morals. She assures that she will be able to repay the loan while at the same time she trusts that she will provide her family with better quality of life.
