Maria Ofelia's story

Maria Ofelia is fifty-two years old and lives with her life partner in their own home. She has a store where she sells basic-need items, like bulk grains, milk, bread, soap products, and other items. She has been in this business for several years and has had a lot of experience in sales, which allows her to obtain the best profits.

The store is located in her home, which is in a community that has a lot of foot traffic. She already has a lot of customers; the people prefer her because the store is well-supplied with high-quality products at good prices. Furthermore, she provides excellent service. Maria is an enterprising and active woman, who is dedicated to her work and has a lot of drive to move forward. She is always looking for new opportunities that will open a path to success.

Like all good saleswomen, she wants to increase her business but needs to make new investments. For this reason, she is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL that will allow her to buy bulk grains, snacks, instant foods/beverages, drinks, soap products, etc. Maria Ofelia has good payment references and is very responsible. She is very thankful for the help, and assures that she will be able to pay off the debt while being able to give her family a better quality of life.
