Adriana
Adriana is 47 years of age, and lives in her own house with her children. Her husband passed away several years ago, and since then she has been responsible for supporting her household. Along with help from her children, she works in agriculture. Each year they repeat the task of sowing corn and sorghum, as these are the basic grains most frequently harvested in the area where she lives.

Adriana is very dedicated when working with her crops, and after harvesting them she sells part of the produce. This is how she earns a living and provides for her household. In addition to the income she gets from her agricultural work, she also receives a pension which helps her to survive and provide for her household.

She is a hardworking, responsible woman with good references from her neighbors, as over time she has won the trust of many people who prefer her produce. Her dream is to be able to provide her family with better opportunities in life, as they live in very humble conditions which do not afford them a better quality of life.

Adriana has decided to request this loan from INTEGRAL to buy the agricultural supplies she needs to plant her crops, such as seeds, compost, insecticides, etc. She cannot wait any longer to plant her crops as the sowing season has already begun. With the help of God and this institution she hopes to have an abundant harvest, which will allow her to repay the loan and continue providing for her household every day.

Junto con la ayuda de sus hijos se dedica a la agricultura. Cada año repiten la tarea de sembrar maíz y maicillo ya que estos son los granos básicos mas cosechados en la zona donde habita. Con mucha dedicación mantiene sus cultivos y luego de sacar la cosecha pone a la venta una parte de esta. Es así como se gana la vida y lleva el pan de cada día a su hogar. Además de los ingresos percibidos de su trabajo en la agricultura también recibe una pensión, la cual le ayuda a ir sobreviviendo y llevando el sustento a su hogar. Ella es una mujer muy trabajadora y responsable tiene buenas referencias por parte de sus vecinos ya que con el tiempo ha sabido ganarse la confianza de muchas personas que cada vez la prefieren más. Su sueño es poder dar a su querida familia mejores oportunidades de vida a las que tienen ya que viven en condiciones muy humildes que no les permiten poder accesar a una mejor calidad de vida. Ha tomado la decisión de solicitar este crédito a INTEGRAL para invertir en la compra de los insumos agrícolas necesarios para la siembra como: Semillas, abonos, insecticidas, etc. ya que no puede esperar más tiempo para sembrar, debido a que la temporada para la siembra ya comenzó. Con la ayuda de Dios y de esta institución espera obtener una cosecha abundante la cual le permita cancelar el préstamo y continuar llevando el pan de cada día a su hogar.
