Ester wishes to increase her sales with the approaching of a very good season, but she does not have enough money to invest in her project, and for this reason she has come to INTEGRAL to ask for a loan that she will use to buy more vegetables such as cucumbers, tomatoes, green chili peppers, onions and carrots.
