A loan of $400 helped to buy basic grains, cheese and other products to stock her shop.

Karen Maria's story

Karen is an individual who truly wants to succeed and improve her life day after day. She lives with her husband and two children.

Karen owns a shop, in which she sells perishable goods and basic household foodstuffs. This business has provided her with extra earnings, giving her and her husband the help they so need to pay for their house and bills on time, as well as the food and other items needed to live with dignity.

Because of this Karen wants to stock more products in the shop, which is why she is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL. Through this loan she can buy rice, beans, sugar, dairy products, drinks and other goods which are essential in any good shop. This is very important to Karen since there is a lot of competition nearby. As a result, she must do everything she can to satisfy her customers and attract others who prefer to buy from her shop.
