Erasmo
Erasmo, 28, lives in a house that’s his property with his family group. He is a farmer and raises cattle to fatten up. He keeps his cattle in good condition with much dedication and once they reach adequate size and weight he sells them. This is how he earns his livelihood and provides daily bread for his home. This activity is his main source of income.

He is a very hardworking, responsible man who has good references from his neighbors since he’s managed to win over the trust of many people who prefer him more and more each time. His dream is to be able to give his beloved family better life opportunities than they currently have since they live in very humble conditions that do not allow for access to a better quality of life.

He’s made the decision to ask Integral for this loan to buy calves to fatten up and raise in order to put them up for sale and be able to improve his income in order to provide his family with conditions that are adequate and bring with them better life opportunities.
