A loan of $750 helped to buy cabbage, eggplant, lettuce, and more.


Maria Santos's story

Fifty-eight-year-old María is a hardworking person and a responsible mother. She lives with one of her sons in her own home. María has had a fruit and vegetable stand for 20 years. Her business is in the municipal market in her neighborhood, which is a very good strategic spot for any business. María works from Monday to Sunday and she has many dedicated customers who prefer her because she is friendly and her produce prices are fair. Maria is asking INTEGRAL for a loan to buy more vegetables, such as cabbage, eggplant, lettuce, potatoes, chayote, plantains, bananas, watermelons, and others that will allow her to have a more stable business that makes good profits.
