Leonor De La Paz
Leonor, 44, lives with her two children and her husband in her own house. She has had a food stall close to her home for 23 years. With the earnings from her sales, she manages to cover her household expenses. She is a fighter who is determined to give the very best of herself so that her family never lacks anything they need to survive. She has the satisfaction of having a fixed clientele, because the stall is located in a very busy area.

She would like to expand her stall by buying tables, chairs, and more primary ingredients such as rice, chicken, meat, beans, fruit, vegetables, etc. to diversify her menu and have a bit more financial income. However, she does not have the necessary income to make this investment. Therefore, she approached INTEGRAL to apply for a loan to buy these products, which will allow her to have better earnings and thus better financial stability.
