A loan of $500 helped for the purchase of tables, chairs, and ingredients.


Anonymous's story

There is always new hope for those who make up their minds to live another day so that they can fulfill their goals and plans for their families, overcoming violence in society. This is the case with this woman, who lives together with her mother and her son, who is her greatest treasure. Her husband lives in the United States and helps her a little bit with finances, but not enough to cover all the household expenses. She is a determined woman whose pledge is to give the best of herself so that her family will not lack the necessities of life. Currently, she works selling food in an area of the country. She has a small stand where, with the help of her mother and her son, she manages to have successful, work-filled days. She tells of the satisfaction of having a regular clientele; her place is located close to an industrial zone, which means that at lunchtime, every worker arrives at her stand to buy lunch because she is the only person with reasonable prices. The borrower wishes to expand her food stand by buying tables, chairs, and more raw ingredients so that she can vary her menu and have a little more money coming in. She doesn't have enough money for this investment, and that's why she approached INTEGRAL to request a loan to buy those items. She gives her thanks in advance and hopes to be able to pay back the debt as soon as possible.
