Pedro Eduardo
Pedro Eduardo is 28 and lives with his family. He has been farming for a long time. Very early on, he learned to plant the land, and now that is his main source of income. Every year he repeats the process of preparing the land, planting, harvesting, and selling the products. This is how he provides for his household and meets the expenses of his family's basic needs.

He wants to improve his financial situation, as he and his family live in very simple, modest circumstances. This motivates him to commit himself even more to his work, because family is everything to him. Since his income depends on farming, he is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL to purchase agricultural supplies (seeds, fertilizer, and insecticides) to start planting. He also needs to pay the laborers who will help him start the planting. He trusts God that, with his work and the support of this institution, he will have an abundant harvest that will allow him a better life as he continues to provide for his family.

Pedro Eduardo tiene 28 años de edad, y habita junto a su familia. Él se dedica a la agricultura desde hace mucho tiempo. Desde muy temprano aprendió a sembrar la tierra y ahora es su principal fuente de ingresos. Todos los años repite la misma actividad de preparar la tierra, sembrar, sacar la cosecha y ponerla a la venta. Es así como lleva el sustento a su hogar y ayuda con los gastos de las principales necesidades básicas del hogar. Su deseo es poder mejorar su situación económica ya que vive en condiciones muy sencillas y humildes junto a su familia. Todo esto lo motiva a comprometerse más en su trabajo ya que para él su familia lo es todo. Dado que depende de los ingresos de la agricultura, solicita este crédito a INTEGRAL para invertir en los insumos agrícolas (semillas, abonos e insecticidas.) para comenzar la siembra y además necesita pagar mano de obra que le ayude en el inicio de dicha tarea. Confía en Dios que con su trabajo y la ayuda de esta institución logrará una cosecha abundante que le permitirá accesar a una mejor calidad de vida y continuar llevando el sustento a su hogar.
