Mirian Ruth's story

Mirian Ruth, who is 32 years old, lives with her common-law husband and her children. She works selling bread with chicken and drinks. She has several years of experience in this business and this has given her the the opportunity to always earn a good income. Her store is located in a place that is good for her business, since she has many customers. The people there prefer her because she sells the best breads, has the best prices, and gives the fastest service. Mirian is a woman very involved with her work, ready to give everything she can to achieve her dreams. The most important thing in her life is her family, and in the last few weeks the deterioration of her house has made the living situation there uncomfortable. The house needs repairs and she wants to complete them as soon as possible for everyone's security. Her biggest secret is perseverance, and she knows that this is how she will achieve success. She needs to invest but doesn't have the capital necessary for it, and so she is asking for a loan from INTEGRAL that will allow her to purchase cement, bricks, wood, tools, etc. Mirian Ruth has good references and is responsible enough to pay the debt, and at the same time has hope that she will be able to give her family better quality of life.
