She has worked all her life in agriculture. This is how she has managed to survive as she has no other source of income other than agriculture. Like all enterprising and visionary women, she has taken the decision to approach this institution as the sowing season is starting soon and she wants to be prepared.
For this reason she is requesting this loan from Integral, in order to invest in the purchase of agricultural supplies, such seeds, insecticides, fertilisers, etc. This will allow her to start sowing as soon as it is possible and later to harvest the fruit of her labour. She is confident that the harvest will be abundant, which will enable her to improve her own quality of life, as well has her family’s.
