Maria Del Carmen
María, 46, is very cheerful and hardworking and very much wants to get ahead in life. She lives just with her life companion who also works. María has a stand in the local market where she sells basic grains, oil, coffee, spices, bleach, soap, hair color and hair accessories, among many others. She’s asking Integral for a loan to have money needed to buy more products, especially hair color and hair creams because the high sales end-of-year season is approaching and she wants to be as well-stocked as possible so sales will increase and she can start off a better year.
