Teresa Del Carmen's story

Teresa del Carmen is 34 years old and lives with her life partner and their children in their own house. She makes traditional embroidered cotton clothing including dresses, blouses, pants, etc., which are all made-to measure with quality materials and offered at excellent prices. Above all she gives very good customer service. Her business is based in her local market, where she is very well-known and has won a lot of valuable customers, putting her ahead of the competition. Teresa is an active woman and dedicated to her work with many dreams that she wants to fulfill. She wants to be successful and knows that the only way to achieve this is through perseverance and with a lot of motivation. Her business has been doing really well, and like any good businesswoman she needs to increase her production, but for that she needs sufficient capital to invest. For this reason, she is asking INTEGRAL for a loan in order to buy fabric, thread, needles, etc. Teresa del Carmen has good payment references and is of high moral standing. She is grateful for the support given to her and certain that she will be able to pay back her debt. She is also confident that in this way she will be able to offer her family a better quality of life, and one that they deserve.
