Jorge Amadeo
Jorge Amadeo lives in his own home with his son and grandson. He is engaged mainly in agriculture, growing corn and beans.

He learned to farm since very young and now that's what allows him to earn the daily bread for his household. He doesn't have any other sources of income other than agriculture.

Every year, he gets ready for the new harvest, always hoping it to be abundant. Jorge is a man who is known for being hard working, honest, and responsible. He has a lot of experience in agriculture, what allows him to gain the trust of many customers who every year wait for his crops. They prefer them for the quality of his products and the good prices he offers.

He is very simple and modest, bringing the food to his home with great effort. Like other entrepreneurs, he took the decision to apply to this institution, INTEGRAL, to request a loan to invest in supplies (fertilizers, insecticides, etc.), necessary for the crops. He trusts in God that he will achieve what he aims with his work. Once he obtains the crops, he will be able to cancel the debt and continue providing economic sustainability to his home.
