Maria Magdalena's story

Thirty-four year old María has her own home where she lives with her two children, both of whom are studying. María has a small shop where she sells a variety of items such as rice, beans, candy, sugar, oil, detergent and so on. She has been doing this for some years and, thanks to God and her determination, she has managed to keep it going for all this time. María is very hard-working and, above all, very enterprising and responsible. She achieves all her goals. Her dream is for her business to flourish and to increase her income, so she can improve her and her family's quality of life. With this in mind, she has applied for a loan from Integral to invest in her small store by buying merchandise such as eggs, sugar, rice, beans, detergent, coffee, milk and more. As long as her shop always stocks what her customers are looking for, María will be able to achieve her dream of improving her and her family's living conditions. She trusts in God that this will happen.
