Deysi Carolina's story

Deysi is 26 years old and is an enterprising young woman with big dreams to get ahead and to achieve everything necessary to live a dignified life. She makes a living selling perfumes and products that are sold through a catalog such as: cosmetics, jewelry, items for the kitchen and the home, and others.

In order to get clients, Deysi does visits from house to house in order to present her products, the majority of which she sells on credit, which is the reason why she needs capital to invest in more purchases to deliver all of her orders. Deysi is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL, with which she will be able to acquire more products to improve her sales and thereby grow her business.
