A loan of $750 helped buy articles to sell in her little store, such as eggs, milk, beans, sugar, and instant soups.


Berta Alicia's story

Berta is 60 years old and presently lives with her family. She is a very enterprising woman who has always given her all to provide the best for her family. She is very well known among her neighbors as an example in her home, since she is a hard-working, responsible, and efficient woman.

For some time how, Berta has had a small store where she sells articles of primary necessity. Due to her nature and manner of being, she possesses her clientele, in part, because she keeps her prices accessible. She wishes to increase her earnings but lacks sufficient capital to carry out her dream.

That's why Berta approached INTEGRAL to request a loan and thus, continue supplying her store, purchasing articles such as eggs, milk, beans, sugar, and instant soups. Berta hopes she can count on the help she needs and be able to continue being an exemplary woman in her home.
