Nancy Marilu
Nancy, of 25 years of age, is a young and responsible wife and mother. She has her own business that provides the necessary help to her husband so together they can support their household. Nancy has a grinder in her dwelling, which she lends to different people that come to grind their food and the corn used in the businesses selling tortillas. Since hers is the only grinder in the area, there is a high demand that sometimes complicates being able to provide service to everybody. For this reason, Nancy is requesting a loan to INTEGRAL in order to obtain the funds needed to purchase an additional grinder. The purchase will allow her to provide service to more customers and thus receive a higher income. This prospect fills Nancy of hope to provide a better quality of life for her daughter.
