Anonymous's story

The desire to overcome and suceed is one of the dreams of this young 25-year old woman who lives with her family. She has a shop where they sell staple goods like basic grains, milk, and eggs. She has been running the business for a while and this experience has allowed her to improve her earnings. The shop is well-known in the neighborhood, and it has a clientele that likes the quality products, good prices, and excelent service. The owner is a hardworker and is dedicated to working every day to build a better future away from the violence of the neighborhood where she resides. She does her best every day because she is happy with her work, and she does not want to disappoint her family. In the last few weeks demand has been going up, and she needs to invest more. This is way she applied for a loan with INTEGRAL to buy basic grains, instant food products, snacks, bread, and drinks. This young woman has a good credit history and is very responsible. She is sure that she can pay off the debt and hopefully bring economic security to her small household.
