Miguel Ángel
Miguel Ángel has been earning his living from agriculture for over 10 years. He learnt about this type of work from his family which has been working this way for generations and thanks to which he has been able to keep moving forward.

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.
