A loan of $800 helped to buy food products to stock her store.


Maria Isabel's story

María, age 42, is very hard-working and disciplined with her two children, who are in high school. It is for them that she works very hard, together with her husband, in order to give them the best and a better future. María has a store in the house she has lived in for 20 years. This makes her very well-known in the area, and it allows her to have several fixed customers. These customers are very important to maintaining her business. María wishes to take advantage of the December season because sales increase. That is why she is requesting a loan from Integral. With the loan she will be able to buy a greater quantity of drinks, candy, spices, cooking oil, bread, basic grains, and other products that people look for much more during the Christmas season. María’s wish is to improve her sales as much as possible, and by doing so she will be more stable in the new year.
