A loan of $500 helped to buy candies, juices, and other things.


Sofia's story

Sofia is very honest, hard-working, and responsible. She lives with her husband, son, and her mother who is very elderly and has, in spite of this, helped with some household activities including the business. Sofia has a shop of basic staples and household items. She has had this business for five years and is has been very positive for her household finances, which she wants to improve as much as possible and thus have higher profits. This is the reason she asked INTEGRAL for a loan with which she will have the money needed to buy: instant soup, toothpaste, candies, juices, sodas, bread, and other items that are very important for maintaining the shop and also for having multiple customers, which is very helpful for her finances.
