Juan Pablo
Juan Pablo, 28, lives with his family: his life companion and young daughter. They live on the small farm they have tended for the past 2 years. He has been farming for 8 years; in addition to planting, he also works as a bricklayer. He plants each year because the harvest is seasonal and only occurs once a year. After the harvest, he sells his products at the main local markets. This is the way he supports his family because he has no other income sources that would provide them with better circumstances.

So he is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL to purchase the necessary agricultural supplies (manure, fertilizers, and seeds) to begin planting corn, which is very important to maintaining and supporting his family.

Juan Pablo tiene 28 años de edad, y habita junto con su familia: compañera de vida y su pequeña hija. Habita en un rancho que cuida desde hace 2 años. Él se dedica al cultivo de la tierra desde hace 8 años. Además de dedicarse a la siembra también realiza el oficio de albañilería. Cada año realiza la siembra dado que la cosecha es por temporada y solo se cultiva una vez en el año. Después de sacar la cosecha la pone a la venta en los principales puntos de venta de la zona donde habita. De esta forma mantiene a su familia, dado que no cuenta con otras fuetes de ingreso que le permitan tener acceso a mejor calidad de vida. Es por esta razón que en eta ocasión solicita este crédito a INTEGRAL para invertir en los insumos agrícolas necesarios (abonos, fertilizantes y semillas.) para comenzar la siembra del maíz que es muy importante para mantener a su familia y llevarles el pan de cada día.
