Vilma Esperanza's story

Vilma Esperanza is 48 years old and lives with her family. She is dedicated to selling clothing for women, men, and children. Vilma offers a variety of shirts, skirts, dresses, and pants, among other things. She has spent various years in her business and this has given her much experience, permiting her to obtain the best earnings. Vilma sells her goods in the streets and from her home. She has built up a large clientele, since people prefer her because she always has what they need at accessible prices, with quality products and excellent service.

Vilma is an enterprising woman, very dedicated to her work. She is always battling for what she wants and never thinks of surrendering until she reaches the success she deserves. During recent months, demand has increased and Vilma wants to take advantage, making a new investment. But she lacks the capital she needs for this.

Consequently, she is requesting, through INTEGRAL, a loan allowing her to buy clothing at wholesale. Vilma comes with good references for repayment and is very responsible. She is certain of repaying the debt and at the same time, confident that the investment will bring economic security to her home.
