A loan of $500 helped to buy wood, nails, glue, varnish, and reeds, etc.


Jose Eliseo's story

Jose, age 42, lives in his own house with his wife and their two children. Jose has a carpentry shop where he makes and sells a variety of beautiful and fine furniture. He has had the business for five years. Thanks to God and to his dedication, he has managed to keep it running. Many people prefer him because he offers quality and good prices for his furniture. Lately, his customers have increased, and the demand is greater each day. His dream is to be able to see his business flourish. He knows that in order for this to happen he has to invest a little more in the production. He needs to do this in such a way as to manage to cover all of the demand. That is why he has made the decision to request this loan from Integral. He will use the loan to invest in his business by purchasing wood, nails, glue, varnish, reeds, and other items that attract more customers. That way he will be able to achieve his objective of improving his quality of life and that of his family.
