Marina De Jesus
She has been a farmer all her life and that is how she has managed to survive, since she has no other source of income besides farming. Enterprising and visionary woman that she is, she made the decision to approach Integral to request a loan and invest in the purchase of farm supplies like seeds, insecticides, fertilizers, and other items so that she can start the seeding process as soon as possible and harvest the fruits of her effort. She is fully confident that she will obtain a plentiful harvest that will allow her to improve her quality of life as well as her family's.
More information about this loan
This loan is part of Apoyo Integral's program to help subsistence farmers located in high-risk regions of El Salvador, including coastal strips, river banks, and volcano fault lines. The program, which offers reduced interest rates, targets farmers who don't qualify for formal funding due to their low-income and geographical risk. By funding this loan, you are helping Apoyo and a local non-governmental organization extend risk-tolerant credit to even more farmers.
