Guadalupe, 52, lives with his partner and their children. He grows corn and beans. He has worked as a farmer for some years and has made himself very valuable through his experience which allows him to get the best harvests. He's very proud of his work and his family supports him 100%. The land that they work is located in an agricultural zone near where they live. He sells his product in nearby areas and already has very good clientele because they know that everything he sells is good quality and at affordable prices; what's more, the service is unequaled. In addition to farming, he also works as a mason to cover the costs of the household.

Guadalupe is a visionary man who wants a prosperous future and is sure that he can achieve it. For a long time he has wanted to increase production but lacked the capital, which is why he's asked INTEGRAL for a loan to buy corn and bean seeds, fertilizer, tools, etc. Guadalupe has irreproachable morals and good references. He is certain that he will be able to pay off his debt and at the same time give his family a full life.
