A loan of $500 helped to buy a variety of fabrics, thread, needles, etc.

Maria Neri's story

María Neri, 50, lives in her own house with her husband and two children. She makes and sells clothing, such as blouses, skirts, dresses, etc. She has been a seamstress for many years and this has been her only source of income. She is hard-working, dedicated, enterprising woman, whose main goal is customer satisfaction, since it is the basis for maintaining an income to cover household expenses.

That is why she has decided to buy a variety of fabrics, thread, needles, etc., to continue offering beautiful, high quality garments. Since she does not have the necessary resources for the investment, she decided to request a loan from INTEGRAL to buy the materials she needs to fill the orders of her growing customer base.
