Anonymous's story

The desire to improve is one of this man’s most important dreams. He lives with his family group in a house he owns in an area of high social violence and crime. He does not want to see his children affected by this difficult situation of violence, and so he keeps them occupied by having them work in his business. This is one of the most important decisions he’s made; he’s proud of this.

He works, together with his children, selling shaved ice in various flavors. They sell from place to place with his mobile sales cart and has many customers that prefer them for the quality of their product, their affordable prices and above all for the quick service. He’s an active, enterprising man who is dedicated to his work and who has many goals he wants to reach. He’s working hard to attain a more prosperous future for his family. He feels very happy with his business but knows that he has to make it grow if he’s to rise out of poverty.

Demand has increased in recent weeks so he’d like to invest in the purchase of necessary ingredients to make his product which is why he’s asking Integral for a loan to buy a new cart for his son to use so he can work and earn more income and be involved good activities as well as meet the demand of his clients. He will also buy ice at wholesale, flavoring agents, jellies. He has good payment references and is very responsible. He assures that he will be able to repay the loan while at the same time trusts that he will be able to bring economic security home.
