A loan of $500 helped to buy clothing at wholesale price.

Maria Rosa's story

María Rosa lives with her life companion and their three children. It is a small family, but a very close one. She sells clothing for women, men, and children. She sells a variety of shirts, skirts, dresses, and pants, among other things. She has had the business for several years and it has given her a lot of experience, which allows her to obtain greater earnings. She sells as a street vendor and from her home. She has earned herself a lot of clients; people prefer her because she always has what they need at reasonable prices, with quality products and excellent service. María Rosa is an entrepreneurial person and is very dedicated to her work. She is always working for what she wants and she has no thoughts of giving up until she has achieved the success she deserves. In the last few months, demand has increased and she wants to take advantage of that fact to make a new investment. However, she doesn’t have the capital she needs, so that is why she is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL that will allow her to buy clothing at wholesale price. María Rosa has good payment references and is very responsible. She assures us that she will be able to pay the loan and she also explains that she will bring economic stability to her home.
