Anonymous's story

Everyone in the world wants to live with dignity and joy. This is how this man strives so that his family, his wife and son, can have the best amidst so much poverty and need. This is why he seeks every morning to find the way to go out to work keeping in mind that his table must never lack daily bread.

He’s very hardworking, honest, sincere and very enterprising because he’s the man of the house and feels the weight of setting an example for his son. He currently works manufacturing and selling artisanal shoes, that is, those made by himself. He has a small sales stand located in a very busy part of the country which is where he heads to every morning to sell and provide sustenance for his home.

Like any good merchant, though, he’s identified the moment to increase sales a bit and this is why he’s approached Integral to request a loan to buy leather, shoe glue and work tools. He’s sure that his need will be heard and good-hearted people will see that his dream becomes reality.
