A loan of $1,000 helped to buy wood, varnish, primer, paint, etc.


Jose Ruben's story

José is 33 years old, and for many years, he has been a carpenter making doors, windows, furniture, etc. He has established clients because of the quality of his products and his good prices. With his earnings, he can afford much of his household spending. He lives in his own house with his wife, who is a tailor, and his children. José is requesting a loan from Integral to buy materials that he can use for this work, such as wood, varnish, primer, paint, etc. This will allow him to continue with his work since it is his only source of income and to be able to give his family a better quality of life.
