Maria Marta's story

María Marta lives with her small family in her own house. She has a tortilla shop which is very well known in the area; she has a good reputation for making the most delicious tortillas that are always hot. Her business, which she has had for a few years, is located in her home. Her experience in her work is very valuable because it has taught her how to make the best tortillas while at the same time earning the most profit possible. She has a good client base because people know that everything that she makes is of the highest quality, as well as being fairly priced with great customer service and quick service. María is very involved in her work. What she wants most in life is to be able to reach her dreams, which is why she works so hard, so that she can be successful.

Some time ago she reached a point of growth in her business and because she doesn't want to disappoint her customers she has decided that she needs to increase her production, but she needs more capital to be able to invest in supplies. This is why she has requested a loan through INTEGRAL, which will allow her to buy corn at wholesale prices and firewood. María Marta has a good credit background and is very responsible. She is thankful for the collaboration provided through the loan. She promises that she will pay the loan back and at the same time will give her family a better quality of life.
