A loan of $500 helped to buy coconuts to sell their water.

Maria Del Transito's story

María is forty-two and is the single mother of a fourteen-year-old girl. She is a responsible and hard-working mother who looks after the well-being of her home. María makes a living by selling coconuts on a street with a lot of business activity and food traffic, since it is near the city market in the area. María has sold coconuts for many years, which has made her well-known, so she has several fixed customers that buy from her every weekend and every opportunity that they can. She is requesting a loan from Integral to be able to buy a larger quantity of coconuts. She will also buy plastic bags to put coconut water in, straws, and other tools that she will use to open the coconuts. María hopes to improve her profits greatly, which she will be able to do, thanks to this loan.
