A loan of $225 helped to buy cashew, peanut, and pumpkin seeds.


Rosa Alba De La Cruz's story

Rosa Alba lives with her life partner José and her daughter. She makes a living buying and selling cashew, pumpkin, and peanut seeds. She has had the business for several years, which has given her a lot of experience so she can get the best profits. The place where she sells is crowded with people. She does her job as a street vendor and from home because she has a lot of customers who prefer her for her delicious and quality product, good price, and excellent service. Rosa's a committed young woman who is dedicated to her job and very much wants to get ahead. She's always looking for ways to achieve success. Demand has increased in the past few weeks and she wants to take advantage of it to make a new investment, but she doesn't have enough capital to support this because her sales are in cash. This is why she's asking Integral for a loan to buy cashew seeds, which have been a little scarce, pumpkin seeds, and peanuts. Rosa Alba has a good payment record and is responsible. She's grateful for the contribution and is certain she'll be able to repay the debt. She's also confident that she'll give her family a better life.
