Teresa De Jesus's story

Teresa de Jesús if forty-three and lives with her children in their house. She has a canteen and sells all types of soup, meat, beans, rice, milk, and sausage, among other things. She sells these from her home, and has worked for a number of years with this small business, through which she has acquired valuable experience which allows her to obtain better food. Thanks to the good direction of her sales, she always has the best earnings. The community where she lives is very busy so she has a lot of clients, although her best clients are her neighbors, who prefer her products for their quality, reasonable prices, and above all else her fast service and clean space. Teresa is an active woman who is determined and very dedicated to her work. She wants to move forward and fulfill her dreams. Because of this, everyday she works to her fullest because she knows that is the only way she might reach the success that she hopes for so much. In the last few weeks the demand for her services rose, and she wants to take advantage of this with a new investment, but she doesn't have sufficient capital to provide it. For this reason she is asking INTEGRAL for a loan that would permit her to buy to buy basic grains, meat, milk, sausage, pasta, drinks, vegetables, etc. Teresa de Jesús has good references for pay and is very responsible. She assures that she will be able to settle the debt and at the same time has hope that she will keep her home economically secure.
