Francisco Alexander
Francisco Alexander is 22 years old and lives in his family's home with his mother and son. He sells milk from his own cows, which he milks every morning. This work was handed down to him, as his family did this work in the past, and he is now in charge of the business. This work is his primary source of income and the way in which his family has survived for a long time. They depend on caring for the cows and milking them every day so that they can sell the milk.

Francisco is a hard-working man and milk vendor, and he is well-known in the region because he is responsible, honest, and supportive. Thanks to his charisma, he has earned the confidence of many people that choose to buy his milk every day. He is one of the few vendors that offer milk at reasonable prices for everyone.

He has been thinking about how to grow his business as he has realized that the economic situation is always becoming more critical. He needs to search for a way to survive this situation, as the situation is always more difficult. For this reason, he is seeking a loan from INTEGRAL to invest in the purchase of cows so that he will be able to offer more milk to his customers. He is confident that he will have positive results that will enable him to improve his economic situation and the quality of life of his family, who are all very humble.
