Maria Cristina's story

María, 50, lives with her son with whom she splits household costs. María owns a store located in the front part of her living quarters from which she sells a variety of groceries and household items. She is a very hardworking person who wants the best for her and her childrens' lives. She is requesting a loan from Integral to invest in the purchase of large quantities of products for the store which would allow her to have more regular customers, a very good thing for any stable business. María very much hopes to strengthen her business with more products since this is what will help her to make a bigger profit and have a better life.
