Anonymous's story

A desire to live with new goals and self improvement is what this young, tenacious, determined woman has. She has never let herself be overcome by the adversity she has encountered in life, whether that be poverty or social violence. She lives with her close-knit family group, which is her greatest treasure and reason to be exemplary.

Currently, she makes artificial flowers by hand in different kinds of paper, plastic or other recycled material. She learned this art from her parents when she was young and has been able to earn a living little by little every day, serving as an example for her entire family, who see the effort she makes and who collaborate with her in the business.

She wants to sell more flowers but does not have the capital to buy enough raw materials. Therefore she has requested a loan through INTEGRAL to buy different papers, glitter, wire, glue and plastic. She is confident this support will help her reach her goals soon.
