Lorenza Isabel's story

58-year-old Lorenza lives with her husband and 15-year-old son in her own home. She is an entrepreneurial, determined woman. Some years ago, she decided to set up a small business in her home. The business is a small store which she has managed to keep running over the years through a lot of hard work and dedication. She has a lot of customers because she considers them to be the most important thing in her business. She always serves them with a smile and a lot of friendliness. For this reason, she has gained the trust of a lot of people in her area and she always has what her customers are looking for. Lorenza dreams of giving her son a better quality of life and she knows that the only source of income she has is her small business. For this reason, she can't neglect it and works hard every day to keep it running.

Lorenza is requesting a loan from Integral to invest in her small store. She will stock it with all kinds of products such as rice, beans, sugar, milk, coffee, candies, oil, paper, detergent and other products that her customers want. She believes that, in this way, she will manage to make her dream come true.
