Ester's story

Ester is 55 years old, she lives with her family composed of her husband and her son. She is a very resourceful woman who has never allowed life adversities to heave the best of her. She is very responsible both with her household chores and in her daily life. With efforts and determination she runs a small fruits and vegetables stall in the central market of her community. She and her husband get up every morning with renewed confidence, working to grant the best to their child and hoping that he will be grateful to them in the future. 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. She hopes to be blessed and to succeed in achieving her drams: it is very important for her as this is her only source of economic income.
