Maria Leticia
María, 40, lives in her brother’s house with her two children and her husband. She has a store where she sells beans, milk, eggs, bread, soap, detergent and shampoo, among others. She’s been in business for several years so she’s gained much sales experience that leads to earning the best profits. It’s located at home which is in a very busy spot. She’s gained a large clientele because she has the best stocked store. People prefer her and keep her ahead of the competition because she always has what they need: quality products and accessible prices with unequaled service always at her customers’ service.

María is a woman who is dedicated to her work and like all good merchants wants to increase business and make a new investment but needs capital to do so which is why she’s asking Integral for a loan to buy basic grains, snacks, eggs, bread, beverages, etc. to earn higher profits and give her family better quality of life.
