Leonel works selling and making potatoes, bananas, and roasted yucca in a place near his house. In addition to this big job he makes a living growing corn, one of his main sources of income.
He needs to buy agricultural inputs but at the moment doesn't have sufficient capital to invest in them. This is why he approached Integral for a loan to buy adequate supplies, such as fertilizer, pesticide, and other things, to have a healthy and abundant crop.
He hopes to get the requested help and also to be able to repay it before the deadline.

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