Rosa Angelica's story

Rosa Angélica, 70, lives with her common-law husband and granddaughter, Emilia, in their own house. She has a grocery store where she sells all kinds of stape goods, such as beans, bread, eggs, beverages, soap, etc. Her vast sales experience allows her to make a good profit. The store is located in her home and is very well-known in the area, by her many customers. There is not much competition in the area, which is an advantage for the store, and people prefer her location because they can always find quality, low priced products and very good service.

Rosa is a hard worker who is always looking for opportunities to be successful. One of her greatest goals is to expand her business, but she is lacking capital. Therefore, she has requested a loan through INTEGRAL to buy staples such as instant products, bread, sweets, cheese, vegetables, etc. Rosa Angélica has a good credit record and is very responsible. She is very grateful for the help and knows she can pay back the loan. Meanwhile, she is giving her family a better quality of life.
