Cesar is 20 years of age and lives together with his wife and his parents. He is a very hard-working youth whose main dream is to work hard to afford the best for his family. He is honest, responsible and enterprising with his daily work. With effort and dedication he succeeded little by little planting loroco (a Central American produce), which is a traditional plant enjoyed by Salvadorans and travelers. Locoro is used to accompany homemade foods and typical dishes such as delicious pupusas. What he harvests he sells for a good price in the regional markets. He has many clients, and at the end of the year he hopes to provide maintenance to his crop making them stronger with fertilizer and making next years harvest larger so he can earn more income to provide for the well-being of his family. This is why he is requesting this loan from Integral to buy fertilizers and insecticides to protect his locoro.
