Magdalena's story

Magdalena is 52 years old. She lives together with her life partner and children. Magdalena owns a little shop/bookstore, where she sells items such as toys, pens and notebooks. She has had this business for some years now, which has given her valuable experience and good profits. She works at home. Her customers are mainly neighbors and she has a great customer base. Her customers prefer her because everything she sells has the best quality and price, but most of all because of the good service she offers. Magdalena is an enterprising woman with a strong will to get ahead in life; she is always searching for new opportunities that might lead her to success. As the good saleswoman she is, she wants to expand her business and invest in it. However, for that she needs capital and that is why she requested a loan at INTEGRAL, to buy notebooks, paper, toys, etc. Magdalena has a good financial record and she is sure that she will be able to pay the loan. She hopes to give her family a full life.
