A loan of $600 helped to buy cheese at wholesale cost.


Juan Ramon's story

52-year-old Juan Ramón lives with his life partner, his children, and his grandkids in his own house. He makes a living by selling a variety of cheese, like queso duro (a hard Salvadoran cheese), queso fresco, quesillo (a soft cheese), and others. He has had several years in the business and this has given much experience in sales which has allowed him to make better profits.

He sells from a stand in the market in town, is well-known, and has gotten many customers who prefer him for the quality, the good prices, and above all, for the excellent service. Juan is known for his great kindness and honesty; he is an enterprising man, dedicated to his work, and is very eager to achieve his dreams. Every day he works as hard as he can at his job because this way he will reach his goal.

In the last weeks the demand has increased and he wants to take advantage of this to make a new investment. This is why he asks INTEGRAL for a loan that allows him to buy cheese at wholesale cost. Juan Ramón has good pay references and impeccable morals. He is certain that he will pay off the debt and at the same time is confident that he will give his family a better quality of life.
