Miguel lives in a rural zone where agriculture is the principal economic activity. He lives with his wife and children. He sows beans and corn, two of the most commonly sold grains in this country as they form part of the average diet.
This business allows him to support his family. For this reason he is asking INTEGRAL for a loan, with the hope of obtaining the money necessary to buy beans and corn in bulk.
With this Miguel hopes to sow many more seeds and obtain a larger income than previously. He also hopes to buy manure and other basic supplies for the crops, which will help him to improve his harvest.

The program, which offers reduced interest rates, targets farmers who don't qualify for formal funding due to their low-income and geographical risk.
