Sandra is 36 years old and lives in her own house along with her family, her husband and children. She works farming staple grains such as corn and beans. She does this work with her husband and this is how they put bread on the table everyday. Sandra is an enterprising, hardworking, and responsible woman. She has always worked in farming because she knows very well how to do this work. Every year she sells part of her harvest and keeps the rest for consumption. In this way, she is slowly moving forward and giving her family their staples. She lives in very humble circumstances with her family, and this motivates her to keep fighting for a different future. She has made the decision to request a loan from INTEGRAL to buy agricultural supplies such as seeds, fertilizer, insecticides, etc. This is how she makes a living and puts bread on the table. She hopes that there will be a good harvest this year and that she will be able to achieve her dreams.
