Reyes Orquidea's story

Reyes Orquidia is 52 years old. She lives with her life companion and their five children, three of whom are in school, and the other two work, helping her with household tasks and in the fields. They live in a house on their property. She is a very entrepreneurial person, she likes to work, she not only harvests corn and beans every year, she also takes charge of raising pigs and selling them. She has a lot of experience in what she does, and this has given her the benefit of having regular customers who speak very well of her. She has very good references and does not have a current loan, so for this reason she applied to INTEGRAL for a loan that will allow her to purchase the necessary supplies to plant two hundred square meters of corn, and she assures that she will be able to comply with the payments for the loan amount she has applied for on the established dates. Reyes hopes that she will give her family a better quality of life.
