Pedro Gonzalo
Pedro Gonzalo learned to cultivate the land many years ago. He grows corn and beans and is able to bring sustenance home with his crops. He lives in his own house under very humble conditions with his wife and two children who are 15 and 10 years old. He wants to start planting and needs to invest in farm supplies like fertilizer and seeds to do so. Because he can’t make this purchase on his own, he’s asking Integral for this loan so that they can give him a little push with the investment he needs to make aiming at continuing to provide his home’s daily bread and to gradually improve his economic situation.
