Esmeralda's story

Esmeralda, age 53, lives in her own home with her child. She has a store where she sells basic staples, beans, milk, eggs, bread, etc. She has had her business for many years, and this has given her experience in sales that allows her to make a better income. Her business is located in her home, in a high-traffic area; this has made her a lot of customers. Her store is more stocked and people prefer it. She stays ahead of the competition because she always has what her customers need, and sells high-quality products at accessible prices and with unrivalled service. She is always at her customers' beck and call. Like all good businesspeople, she wants to expand her business and make a new investment, but she needs capital. For this reason, she is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL which will allow her to buy basic staples, candy, eggs, bread, drinks, etc. This way, she will be able to provide her family with better economic stability.
