Mauricio is 29 years old, and lives with his life partner and their two children. He grows yuca and pear squash, and already has several years of working in farming. He has gained a great deal of experience which allows him to always obtain the most marketable harvests.

His farmland is highly productive. It is rented and close to his home. He sells in all the neighboring areas, and already has a large clientele, as people prefer him for his excellent service and the quality of this product.

Mauricio is a man who looks to the future, and is very dedicated to his work. He wants to gain future prosperity, and knows with that with his perseverance and motivation he will achieve that success.

In the past harvest he had substantial losses because of the heavy rains, and wants to recover in this growing season. But he needs the support of working capital for investing in agricultural supplies. That is why he is applying to Integral for a loan that will allow him to buy yuca and pear squash seeds, fertilizer, herbicide, and tools.

Mauricio has a good credit record and is very responsible with his payments. He gives his word that he will be able to pay back the debt within the established timeframe, and at the same time hopes to bring financial security to his household.
