A loan of $300 helped to buy fruit and vegetables at wholesale.


Santos De Jesus's story

Santos lives with her life companion in her own house. She works buying and selling fruit and vegetables: strawberries, bananas, oranges, tomatoes, onions and chilies, among others. She’s been in business for several years and she’s gained much sales experience that leads to the best profits. The place where she sells is very strategic for this activity and many people come by there. She has a large clientele that prefers her because her products are fresh, well-priced, good quality and service is excellent. Santos is an enterprising woman who is dedicated to her work and who very much wants to get ahead. In the last few weeks demand has increased so she wants to take advantage of it to make a new investment but lacks enough capital do back her up which is why she’s asking Integral for a loan that will make it possible for her to buy fruit and vegetables at wholesale. Santos has good payment references and she’s grateful for the support; she assures that she’ll be able to repay the loan while at the same time trusts that she’ll give her family a better life.
