A loan of $500 helped to buy stock merchandise for her store.


Maria Laura's story

María, 42, lives with her life companion and 12-year-old son in her own house. She has a store where she sells basic staples like beans, milk, eggs and bread, among others. She’s been in business for many years and has gained sales experience that allows her to earn the best profits. The store is located in her place of residence in a very busy location. She’s attained a large clientele because her store is better-stocked. People prefer her over the competition because she always has what they need: quality products at affordable prices with unequaled customer service, always at her customers’ service.

Like all good merchants she wants to increase business and make a new investment but needs capital which is why she’s asking Integral for a loan to buy basic grains, snacks, eggs, bread, beverages, etc. María has good payment references and is sure that she’ll repay the loan while trusting that she’ll provide better quality of life for her family.
