Mario Alberto
Mario Alberto, 50, lives in a house of his own with his family which is composed of his wife and two children. He farms basic grains like corn and beans. This is how he earns his livelihood and how he manages to provide daily bread for his home. It’s his main source of income since once he gathers the yearly harvest he sells it to earn income to cover the home’s main expenses. For him, his family is very important. What he wants most is to help them get ahead, especially his children who are his greatest inspiration.

He’s decided to ask Integral for a loan to buy fertilizer and fungicide for his crops so that he can get a good harvest that will make it possible for him to improve his income and consequently his quality of life.
