Margarita Del Carmen's story

Margarita del Carmen is forty-seven years of age and lives with her life partner and her grandson. She earns her living selling meals: breakfasts and lunches such as tamales, eggs, beans, soups, meat dishes and salads, among other things. She has been running the business for a number of years and, through it, has gained plenty of sales experience, which allows her to make bigger profits. She plies her trade in a place which she considers very favourable for her business and she is well known throughout her community for preparing the most delicious dishes in the area. She now has a large regular clientele who prefer her because she sells only goods of the highest quality, prices them reasonably and, above all, delivers excellent service.

Margarita is busy, enterprising, dedicated to her work and always willing to strive to find the best opportunities for success. Her greatest secret is hard work and love of the job which, she knows, are the only ways to achieve her ambition.

In recent weeks demand has increased and she wants to capitalise on this by making a new investment. To do this she needs capital and is, therefore, seeking an INTEGRAL loan to buy corn, chickens, vegetables, meat, eggs, drinks, etc. Margarita del Carmen has good repayment references and is highly responsible. She guarantees that she will be able to repay her debts and, at the same time, is confident that she can provide a full life for her family.
