A loan of $300 helped to buy fabrics, thread, and needles to stock his business.


Juan's story

Juan is 59 years old and is a man very dedicated to his work. This has permitted him to have many regular customers. He has more than 20 years of experience working in furniture upholstery, including armchairs, wardrobes, couches, tables, and chairs. He is also very responsible when it comes time to deliver his goods, which he also does with great care.

Juan is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL, which will give him the funds necessary to buy thread, specialized needles, fabric, glue, and other tools. These permit him to take on a greater number of jobs repairing furniture and all that his customers ask him to work on. In this way, Juan will improve his business and at the same time his financial stability.
