Maria Angela's story

María is 58 years old and she lives in her own home. She is engaged in dressmaking and sells clothing. Her business is located in her home. María is an incredible woman and a very good example as she is very hardworking, responsible, and positive. In addition, many people give her good personal and professional references. She makes a variety of clothing at very affordable prices. She has been engaged in this activity for many years so she already has a lot of experience and, above all, she has regular customers that prefer her more each day. She has decided to request this loan from Integral to invest in her small business and purchase needed supplies such as fabric, thread, elastic, buttons, and other items to make a variety of clothing. She does all this with the goal of providing better service to her customers so that they are motivated to continue requesting her services and, in this way, increase her sales and income. She hopes to achieve her goal and improve her quality of life.
