Jorge Humberto
Jorge Humberto is 51 years old and lives with his wife and children in a home of their own. He raises corn and sorghum and has been farming for many years. It’s allowed him to obtain better harvests. The land on which he works has a high agricultural potential and it’s ready for planting and close to his home. He sells everything in the community’s surrounding area and has many customers who prefer to buy from him because of the quality of his products, the good prices, and above all for the excellent service he gives his customers.

Jorge is an enterprising man with a great desire to get ahead. With great effort and dedication to his work, he is certain that this is the only way he can have the success that he greatly desires. He had some losses during the last season because of the weather and he wants to recover. To do this he needs capital to back him, so he is requesting a loan through INTEGRAL so he can buy corn and sorghum seeds, insecticides, herbicides, etc.

Jorge Humberto has good payment references from his friends and he is very happy with the help and is committed to repaying this loan and at the same time provide a good life for his family.
