Erica Marisol
Érica Marisol lives with her life partner in a rented house which they just moved into. She is a very responsible and hard-working woman, and she also has an excellent record of paying her debts. Érica works growing basic grains, rice and beans, together with her family, on a plot of land that is favorable for growing these crops. She sells her products in various areas around her community, and she already has a lot of customers who prefer to buy from her because of the quality of her products, her good prices and her excellent service. For this planting season she wants to increase her production, but she does not have the capital, and for this reason she is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL to buy corn and bean seeds, as well as fertilizers, compost, etc. She promises to make her payments on schedule for the loan granted to her, which will be used as an investment to improve her family's quality of life.
